I have a problem with the windows on my pc. It started off with windows media player not loading and telling me it had an'internal error'. Then I tried to bring up explorer by the 'windows+E' keys and this is not happening and just keeps offering the error report to go to microsoft and then I tried to download the lateset windows update and this would not happen. When I tried to use the link to see what had gone wrong, I encountered a page failure. I am really worried. I am wondering if I could re-load windows from my cd-rom I received with my computer? Can I do this without disturbing all of my other stuff or will I have to start from scratch? I have no restore points as I had to turn this off today to get rid of the netsky.z virus.
I did the scannow and this came up with nothing. I had a quick look before I go out at the link you gave and this tells me how to repair from a windows xp disk. My disks are restore cd's from pre-installed software. Do you know if I run this the same but with cd1 for example?
I have looked for the patch but MS webpages are coming back with no search criterea matched. I have read a bit about this worm and it goes back to about may this year, wouldn't my AVG have found one that has been around for so long?
Well I seem to have had so many problems lately, I have decided I am going to restore my computer from the restore disks that came with it. Thanks to all that tried to help. I am off now for a while to try and copy to disk all that I can before completely whitewashing my pc. I am sure I will be back soon though, probably needin help with set up or similar.
Thanks for all of your help
