Hi:

I have recently gotten the W32 Virus, which I've gotten rid of but now when I move my mouse over icons on the desktop they move and go crazy. so I was wondering how do I fix this problem. Thanks for any help!

Hi Mitzi,

Well, it seems you didn't get rid of it after all, then.
Or it's a new one.

It sounds like the Magistr32 virus, and it must have been there for some time, if it's doing that:

Try having your computer scanned on line.

Trend Micro HouseCall is a good site for that.
<A HREF="http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/activescan.asp?Language=2&Country=63&Partner=1&Ref=EN-PR-AS-107">Panda Active Scan</A> is another one.

And here's a dedicated Magistr cleaner: http://www.wilders.org/HTMLobj-746/Antimagistr.zip

Good luck,

Mitzi, what was the full name of the virus you had and what program did you use to do a scan. The mouse problem is typical of a magistr infection that has gone undetected for awhile.

Try doing another online scan here and tell us what it reports:

If your system is scanning clean, download, unzip and run the Startuplog.com file from the site below. It will place a file, startuplog.txt on your desktop. Copy and paste the full contents of that (not stubbpaths.txt) in your next reply.
