On offsring's pc he's somehow got a nasty which creates many file icons 'Ctxx' (with all digits different) all over the desktop on startup. I've done Housecall scan and deleted 1 file, I've run SpyBot and Adaware and deleted several, but it still keeps coming back. Does anyone know where to look so i can delete in safemode if necessary.
BTW he's got NAV 2000 which didn't work and when I tried to reinstall from HP System Recovery/Drivers and Utilities discs didn't want to know.
I foolishly deleted the file after Housecall scan without making a note. I've run 2 more scans - nil, plus spyware scans. I've unchecked all but vitals on msconfig and now it's gone. I'll find out which one tonight.
His NAV wasn't working and he hasn't got a firewall. Why don't offspring listen to their parents?
Thanks for help.
