    I would appreciate some help in removing the BS Virus (forget the real name of this killer) and the trojan.peacom.b

    This is on my daughter's machine and the BS makes you think you are running some kind of adaware type program.

    Thing is this virus has complete taken over the machine and you can do nothing, hence the reason I am not uploading a hijack this log file.

    Norton found the trojan.peacomm.b but did not remove it, rather sent it quarantine.

    Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. I am about to fdisk this machine and start over.

    This machine is running xp pro service pack 1. Not sure why I hadn't installed sp 2 :)

    Thanks in advance.

    An update...

    I attempted to use the win xp disk to repair and when I enter the admin password it kicks me out to the c:\windows prompt and stops. I can do a dos dir of the c:\windows directory.
