    In addition please check the following two lines :

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Explorer] Explorer*.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Windows Explorer] Explorer*.exe

    Then do a windows search for Explorer*.exe --- Make sure you use that exact name and not just Explorer.exe. When you find it right click and delete. Then run an online scan here- http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

    Hello Mobo,

    I appreciate that and will proceed as you suggest.

    Thanks.

    And Mobo, the vrus scan yielded no viruses.

    As for the Explorer*.exe search it found:
    C:\WINNT and
    C:\WINNT\ServicePackFiles\i386

    I decided to have a look at Explorer.exe and that yielded the identical files.
    Further guidance please since a deletion in the former is matched by a deletion in the latter (i.e of ServicePackFiles\i386).

    Hi Mobo,

    I used each of the above to search, each search yielded identical results.

    I am uncertain about what you mean "Are they both like this--Explorer*exe"?

    OK, Mobo, I can that do easily enough. I just won't search for Explorer*.exe. That way I won't see it, I guess. And therefore won't have to delete it.

    Thanks for your help.

    Hello Tidus,

    I think yoiu may be right about the Backdoor virus. Anyway what came out of that attempt to help a friend was I had some experience with virus removal I might not otherwise have had. More significantly, perhaps, was that the PANDA 'house call' was successful, where the Trend Micro was not, in finally clearing the remaining viruses from the computer.

    Also the several parasite/spyware freewares came into their own, namely Spybot S & D, CWShredder and HijackThis. My experience here gave me those.

    Whether or not my friend decides he needs to pay some attention to anti-virus software and Windows Updates remains to be seen.

    Thanks for your help.

    You're welcome :D

    In fact there was a test bench on loads of antivirus with over 30K+ viruses and a few did not fare well, even the free ones. Norton AntiVirus was only the better one out of the lot. (Against price and reliablity etc)
