I AM LOOKING FOR A METHOD OF REPORTING SOME DANGEROUS CODE. RECENTLY BATTLED A FRIENDS XP OS THAT WAS INFECTED BEYOND REPAIR. I FOUND A FILE IN THE SYSTEM32 UNFORTUNATELY I RENAMED IT. I BELIEVE IT WAS A BATCH FILE. CONTENTS WERE AS FOLLOWS
PERHAPS IT’S NOTHING… IT DIDN’T LOOK AS THOUGH IT BELONGED. I ENDED UP REPARTIONING AND REBUILDING THE OS.
I PUT IT IN MY WINDOWS 7 MACHINE IN AN ATTEMPT TO CLEAN THE DRIVE. 7 WAS CURRENT WITH ALL THE “UPDATES” AND SUPPOSEDLY PROTECTED. WITHIN 20 MINUTES I LOST CONECTIVITY TO ALL ANTIVIRUS WEB SITES AND WINDOWS UPDATE.
FORTUNATELY THAT WAS AN EASY FIX FOR 7 AS I JUST TOOK IT BACK IN “TIME”.
IT WAS AT THAT POINT I DECIDED TO REPARTITION THE DRIVE.
I DID ATTEMPT USING THE LATEST KAPERSKY LIVE CD… IT FOUND 19 VIRAL THREATS. HOWEVER WHEN I FINALLY BOOTED WIDOWS. IT BEGAN TO DETERIORATE.
I WISH I’D HAD MORE TIME TO INVESTIGATE MORE THOUROUGHLY… IF IT HELPS GREAT… IF NOT DELETE. THANKS.
