    Have a virus on my xp system I can't completely remove, I get the pop up with my virus protection, It allowed me to copy to quarentine but will not move it to quarentine or delete it and everytime the computer is on it will do this. the virus is Net-Worm.Win32.Small.c It is in the file system.exe Directory: C:/windows/system32. I hope I can get rid of this worm so I don't get interupted with the pop up of the virus when using my computer.

    Hi, Would like to have you post a log from HijackThis, a program (very tiny) that we use to see what problems exist.

    There are directions here to do it: There are .zip form and .exe form, take your pick.

    Download it here:


    Or here.

    It's a direct download so be ready with the folder for it.

    Basically, you create a new folder, the desktop is OK provided you make a folder, name it something like HJT, and download TO that folder, run hijackthis.exe from there. If there are users of the computer who might start HJT and use it, hide the program in a folder elsewhere!

    First open a reply here in your thread to have it ready.
    Run Hijackthis.exe, and
    Select the "Scan and save a log" button...

    When it is done scanning> the Save box will become available, save the log as hijackthis.txt which will open with Notepad. Hit the EDIT> Select All then the EDIT>Copy button at the top of your log, Go back to TSG, and click once in the blank reply space, then go to the top of your browser window and select EDIT>Paste.
    Please do NOT use HJT yourself to remove anything, most of what it shows is good and needed by the system.
