ugh...this sucks bloody sh*t!!!

I don't know what the hell happened, but it's a nightmare and I got adaware, spybot and beta1 micosoft antispyware...now McAfeevirus scan is telling me a got a trojan virus New Malware g, or sum sh*t...

I'm doing everything I know possible, but sooner or later, this crap keeps coming back.

should I re-install my WindowsXP again?

What is the precise name of the trojan? A complete reinstall of XP would be a last resort. There's likely a way of removing it even if your virus applications won't do it automatically.

Shame...

Did you try to search in the register for the infected file?? Type regedit command because many times it is there...

Not only that, but you should stop posting here altogether.

The virus that you have creeps through the Off-Topic section and heads toward the Reviews. It seeps it's way through the Memphis FTD review then heads right straight for the Picture Section. It slowly crawls around the photograph of Elvis and the boy sitting on the couch. Lo and behold, it goes right for the throat of the Chat-Talk section. It is not interested in anything there, so what does it do? It goes right back down to the Off-Topic section and eats Cindy Sheehan. By eating Cindy, the worm will never be the same again. It will die off a little and lose some of it's strength.

Now, here's where you come in. If you continue to post, the worm will eventually find it's way to the All Elvis section. Once there, the unthinkable happens. It may destroy all of the Elvis On Tour Outtakes threads. Lord have mercy!

Just the thought of it makes my skin crawl. You must leave now, Mink and whatever you do, please don't come back here until you know that we'll all be safe.

In the meantime, we wish you the best.
