Hi, My virus came a few weeks ago. I can't open up any windows folders directly, like control panel, my documents, etc., but I can open up specific files if i go to Run in the start menu. If I try to open up a folder, the task bar goes blank for a second and then returns to normal, without opening the window. My IE does not work at all anymore, when I try to open it, again, the taskbar goes blank. Also, before when I could still open up windows folders, the system32 folder used to automatically open up whenever I restarted my computer, but now since I can't open up folders, it seems like it's trying to open, becuase when my computer boots up, the taskbar goes blank for a few seconds. I ran AdAware and SpyBot, and they found some spyware, but deleting them did not do anything. I ran Avast! Anti-virus and they informed me that I was infected with a trojan virus, it was system32/aupdate.exe, so I deleted that, but I ran it again and they said the virus was in commonfiles/aupdate.exe, so I deleted that, but I still have the same problems, and now Avast! does not detect a virus at all. Oh also, when I restart my computer, it just shuts down, but I'm not sure if that's related becuase it just started happening recently. ANy help would be great! Thanks a lot in advance. Oh, and IM running XP Home.
