    hi, i think my computer has a quite serious problem, yesterday i tried to install a few programs n maybe one of them contains a virus, when i did the virus scanning, i found there's trojan virus there.
    i cudn't open my c: or my documents, and almost all.

    i tried to cleaned them up using my antivirus program (AVG 7.5, free ed)
    and it works

    after that, i tried to do another scanning, and the result shows that it has no viruses anymore,

    fyi- before there was 8 file were infected, most of them are from system32

    the new problem is, even though i can open all my drives like normal, but the icon of my drive c now has changed into a red cross symbol, as shown in the attachments, "screen"

    and when i turn my laptop on, there's a box appears, shown in attachments, "error1"

    can u please tell me what is going on with my laptop?
    and what should i do?

    thanks a lot.
    waiting for ur reply
    thx!
    ;p

    Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
    • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
    • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
    • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    • Click on Install.
    • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
    • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
    • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
