No. Our last option is a boot disc.

Please download this file: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

  1. Insert a black CD into your CD draw.
  2. Double click the rescuecd.exe file on your Desktop.
  3. Hit the "Burn CD" button and allow it to burn, it shouldn't take too long.
  4. Next, reboot your computer, keep the CD inside the draw.
  5. Your computer should boot from the CD and boot to the Avira rescue disc.
  6. Next, see this guide here and follow the instructions on that page: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
Let me know how it goes.

It done lots of searches and renamed one file and found 10 possible alerts, have rebooted in XP and its still the same.

What is the final way around this put the hard drive in for repair, wipe it and start again?

If its wiped/formated will that definately remove any/all of the viruses?

thanks
