i have a trojan horse downloader swizzor virus....to remove it i need to go to MS-DOS mode (I can do that) but I dont know how to find the infected file.
What version Windows?
Also what Anti Virus and is it up to date?
I am running Windows ME.I use AVG anti virus and yes it is up to date
Can you start in Safe Mode?Is the virus located in c:\system inforamtion\restore or something like that? The scanner should tell you.
i dont use avg but i would assume you can create rescue disks. If Jester 2k ideas dont work try rescue disks they should allow you to boot into and run av in dos mode, you will have to set your A: drive to first bootable device
i'm using AVG 7.0 where you can access the rescue disk wizard from AVG's control centre. I assume it can be accessed from there in previous versions.Jester2K's suggestion will let you run a scan without any files being locked. To boot into safe mode, press F8 key while booting then choose, safe mode from the menu that pops up
Virus is on drive.....that is all i know about it. doesnt say what drive or anything else
Try The Cleaner click here
Well VoG, I d/l The Cleaner and it didnt pick up the trojan, but when I ran AVG again it did......so what next? Im getting more and more confused by the minute...LOL
AVG does tell you WHERE the file is. Open Test Results and look there. Open the line that says "File Infected" and look at the details... What does it say?(I bet this is another System restore one)Have you tried scanning in Safe Mode?
