Help Me Nutcan ... My Comp is Infected.So yesterday, in my University email, I received a message saying that someone had sent me an e-card. As soon as I opened it all hell broke loose. My AVG threw up a warning - then my comp shut itself down. When I re-started it wanted to check my c-drive for consistency. Also, now, it just shuts down periodically and restarts itself, but, when it restarts my windows firewall has been turned off. What should I do?

|PackOne - If you got a problem ... yo i'll solve it.|
|Thats what I am worried about.|
|Jeremy - I believe virtually everything I read.|
First of all, don't open ecards if you don't know the person.
Secondly restart in safe mode, run AVG, download and run Ad-aware.
And then do this.

|For safe mode start-up is it bang on F8?|

|I think so.|

|Well I did everything I think. I went to squash the worm but the file they were looking for didn't exist. Maybe the adaware thing found it along with the other 303 infections it found. I re-started and everthing seems kosher. Thanks. We will see what happens.|
