Is this a virus?

  PhiltheFragger 11:08 03 Sep 2004

Just come back from hols and the first 2 XP computers I have seen have the same symptoms.

1. All Start up menu items are disabled. so no Anti virus or firewall.

2. Most services under "services.msc" disabled.
3. Device manager and system information do not function
4. Internet connection details have been wiped.
5. Printer does not work.

This is either a weird coincidence or a virus.

Has a new bug like this emerged in the last few weeks and what is its name, is there a tool for removal etc
