My anti-virus software has quarantined:
W32/[email protected] - the virus can't be deleted and my PC keeps crashing. The file affected is: WINDOWS/SYSTEM/WSOCK32.DLL.

I do not have the facility to read jpeg files - can anyone assist me please?

P.S. what anti-virus are you using?

click here may help but what is your operating system and virus checker as it may have a removal tool.

My PC's win sock files were also messed with owing to downloading mp3 music files, which some how came with a downloaded file called New dot net. It doesn't have this effect on all pc's, but in the end I had to take my pc in and the hard drive had to be formatted! Costly experience.
