What was the worm's name?

All Norton came up with was C:\WINDOWS\XRNJPIR.EXE. So I deleted it, and now the Pc will not let me do anything. The file I downloaded was "PACK31" if thats any help.

Can't find anything relating to this anywhere.
Do you have anymore info.
As expertec asks, did Norton report a name when it found it. Also where did you get this string of letters from. Do you have a file of this name on your system and is it running.

The filename is random so will not reveal anything.

Do you get any error messages when running programs etc?

If so, what are they EXACTLY??

I can't find anything out as it will not let me do anything with .EXE at the end. Can't even get into windows explorer

All it says is "Windows cannot find C:\WHATEVER.EXE, Make sure you tyed the name correctly, and try again.

Solved this two days ago on another PC. Similar.
