    I have a virus in the archives on my D drive.
    The virus is Adware.Win32.Altnet.b . I have Windows XP. How do I get rid of this virus without doing a destructive system restore. I do not know how to unpack my file on my D drive in order to manually remove the virus, also I understand that this is risky since it may impact my ability to do a system restore later on my computer if I attempt to go int my archive. Any advice out there. Help!!

    Hi my name is David [​IMG]

    Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
    Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
    • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
    • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the "Select Addition Tasks" dialogue.
    • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    • Click on the "Do a system scan and save a log file" button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    • Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
