    After recently getting a lua worm from the hl2 mod "Garry's Mod" I started having tons of computer problems. I believe that the LUA worm downloaded and installed other viruses, one of which was LLS.32.blaster.vbs

    After booting windows from the CD I found I no longer had the program titles on the task bar,t I had trouble deleting folders (although I could delete individual files),and even copying and pasting files. I tried to preform a system restore but that gave me an error, so I tried to preform a XP repair from the install cd but mid way through the install I got an fatal error. Now every time I restart my computer it brings me back to the windows xp setup screen.

    I am trying to move several folders from my C drive to my D drive so that I can reformat but every time I try to change directories (IE trying to go from D: to D:\downloads, I can still go from c to d though) in prompt it tells me access is denied. Also I can delete individual files in prompt but again not folders.

    Thanks for any help!

    You need to clean out the virus/worm/trojan infestation. Just moving files and folders to another drive isn't going to protect you. Malware hides in all sorts of places.

    You should post a HijackThis log in the Security Forum and get help to get your system cleaned out.

    Wow, I didn't think it was possible to get a worm from luas. Do you remember the name of the server?
