I am trying to clean up a friends Laptop (Toshiba Satellite 2180CDT). It is running Win98-Se. Upon starting to desktop strange things started to happen, such as multiple apps were auto-starting. I cleaned out files from TEMP folder and CRT-ALT-DEL and terminated everything except for Explorer and Taskbar. This seemed to stabalise the system. Installed Kasperskey 5.0 and immediately detected multiple infections of W32.FunLove.4070 virus. I ran a full system scan and Disinfected everything found. I had not updated virus signatures from net at this time. Upon further inspection of Registry values: HKLM>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Run HKCU>Software>Microsoft>Windows>CurrentVersion>Run I found and Deleted references to OPSERVA Virus. Just when I thought everything was stable, random Applications began auto-starting everywhere. Upon restarting and entering the BIOS, strange stuff started to happen. BIOS options started to change by themselves, and I could not control the cursor. Upon rebooting to DOS using a Start-up disk, I was unable to type anything legible. Some keys worked, others just spewed out gibberish. Then suddenly the PC just took over and started writing rubbish on the screen, line after line. Only option was to switch off. Damn, its Possessed!!! Given the symptons, could anyone possibly put a name to this Beastie. Does the Toshiba run a Hidden Diagnostics partions on the HDD? Could the virus code be lurking in there? Or is it already too late and has it infected the BIOS? Any help appreciated. Thanks ICOOCH.
