    I have a virus on my pc that I can't seem to take off. I recently d/l the TDS-3 and a screenshot below is of the virus. When I save the file it states that it is under the regkey Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run [LOAD32=C:\WINDOWS\System32\swchost.exe

    But I can't seem to browse past CurrentVersion when I use regedit. Anyway, from the tds-3 program, under the alarm the virus is named

    Worm.Mapson

    Any help would be appreciated by e-mailing me at: christian2 -AT- marshall _DOT_ edu

    Thanks.

    Hello BoboJaymz and welcome to the forum!
    You talked about an screenshot which i don't see?

    What happens if you rightclick on the virus and delete it?

    Make sure you update the databases every time to the latest while scanning.
    If you're on XP you'll like to disable the system restore - reboot - enable system restore again to create a new restore point and the infection has gone with the deleted restore points.

    Please post back how it goes?

    A next step could be to post your HijackThis log -- look in this please [thread]15913[/thread] step #2 for the Hijackthis log instructions and to post them in that same forum over there for expert advice.
