  Lady Lara 17:37 28 Nov 2005

i am having problems...... firstly i cannot 'switch user' it has stopped working. secondly i have just had the microsoft net passport login flash up several times when i am doing nothing. Then the login to msfrontpage was put up twice and i had to click cancel quickly. Is Big brother watching me???

Scan with the usual AVG and Spyware programs, if nothing is found run a system file check. Start/Run/Type sfc /scannow you will need your XP CD. (I am assuming XP)

Have you tried system restore???

switch user still not working. Have run Spybot, adaware, avg (all up to date) AVG detected the following...... Java/ByteVerify (x4) and JS/PSMYE. AVG Deleted another one but think it was JS/PSYME but I habve delete the java files etc. Cannot do safe boot as it just restarts PC... HELP!!!!

Also run services.msc and check whether Fast User Switching Compatibility is running.

things went from bad to worse.. I shall explain... Ran Spybot, Spydoctor, avg and ad-aware. Found a few things but AG found 5 viruses (embedded). Then CD Drive stopped writing, printer refused to print and usb sticks could not be read. Cleared viruses and still no change. Got rather annoted and tried admin tools but that wouldn't play either. So... did the easy thing and reinstalled windows. Not too much data lost and am in the middle of rebuilding from backups.

Howver i do have another problem now.. see new post from me and thanks for advice
