Hi all,
I am new to this site and saw lots of helpful replies so hopefully you can assist me.
I have an NT4 domain containing a few W2k File servers. We were hit with the Gaobot virus
(2 different variants). We have followed all the removal guidelines, patched the servers
and are running the latest definitions. However, there appears to be a bit of a legacy left
over from the virus activity and I need some help in sorting this out. Formatting is not
really an option or certainly only a very last resort.

The odd things which are occurring are: mystery process not noted which is taking up about
20 % of the CPU. Even when idle the system randomly shows 60-80% idle time when it is
normally 99%. When trying to add a new machine into the domain it will not allow this.
It will not allow users (formerly with no problems) access to network shares. When you
remove and try to add the machien back into the domain (to recreate the SID) it will
not allow you to do this. A new administrator account on the domain has been created
in case of any problems with the former account post virus but this has made no difference.


Any help would be much much appreciated. :confused:

Thanks

Tina.
