    I am new here and have been searching these forums for answers but I cant seem to find them on my own. I recently got a few viral infections and have been running a lot of online checks and fixes. Yet I am still unable to open any .exe so I cant install any new AV as my old one stopped working, or never was working properly I just got this computer online a few days ago.
    I noticed these specific viruses and at least one backdoor according to norton free scan and trendmicro housecall.
    w32.jeefo
    rononer (I am not sure on the spelling.)
    dada (again I am not sure about the rest of it.)
    I am not sure if I have cleared it all or what I should do to begin repairs
    or if repairing is even possible anymore.

    Thanks for helping reading and any info on the situation.

    I'm running:
    Windows XP home

    If anyone needs more info to help I will check this thread frequently, to update info.

    Thanks again.
