Virus infected network

  recap 21:08 05 Dec 2003

At work we run a W2K network. We have been infected with a virus.

The characteristics of this are as follows: Netlogon not working, networked printers printing test pages at random but no access to them over the network. No client can access the network or Internet. On the server the Event Viewer is filling up within half an hour of me clearing it. The server is restarting at random, on the odd occasion it has booted up to the BIOS and reported that the Processor speed is incorrect.

The only solution at the moment I can do is to remove each client PC from the network and connect it direct (via a crossover cable) to our Internet server to run a virus update.

With the above characteristics does any body know of what virus I should be looking for. If I knew which it was then I could resolve this easily.

Thanks stuntmaster, yes it is bad. I run a UK Online Centre so it is closed until I can get every thing up and running again, plus, all the offices are on the network so nobody can access any work.
