Virus Damage to Registry

  dth 16:40 16 Oct 2003

Just removed a virus (swen.a) from a p/c with Windows NT. The only problem is that it has knackered the registry - as all program files look for the virus exe (ssgxwir.exe) first, can't find it and won't run.

Am sure that I've seen a reg fix file referred to on this messageboard - can some kind soul point me in the right direction.

Many thanks

VoG - Thanks for that. I had downloaded the fix from the Sophos site but ther wasn't anything to sort out the reg problem.

The fixswen worked a treat.

Jester2K II - I have downloaded your zip file for future reference (hopefully not needed...)
