I clicked on my friends away message that said:


OMFG LOOK

?!!!??!?


Now I advise you, DO NOT go to that website.. I have a virus now that won't let me open programs/certain windows.. I know how to fix it, but it closes the window I need.. Anyone know how to get around this..?

I have had something similar a few times. Hit Ctrl+Alt+Del and look in your process list. If you see something called "ntsysmgr.exe" or "sp.exe" do a windows search for it and delete it.

Edit: I am assuming you have WIN2K or XP

Wait... .SCR?!

Go to display properties and select another screen saver...that should fix it.

SCR file = Screen saver.

If all else fails, press F8 when Windows is booting up and go into safe mode.

Then select another screen saver, and voila! It's fixed.

from comand prompt:

tasklist -- views processes
taskkill/PID (PID#) -- kills a process

I had the exact same problem.

Just ctrl + alt + delete and then screen shot it. After that, ID the file name of the virus and do a system search on it. Delete all of the files by that name (It was like MXsomething, if I remember correctly). One of them will say "Cannot delete - currently running." The solution to that one is simple... ctrl + alt + delete and then end the task as fast as you can (took me about 15-20 tries). Then, delete the file (it's no longer running) and empty it from your recycle bin.

There you have it... the layman's, brutish-force way to fix a virus!

if you are searching the process list, it may also help to reboot into safe mode.

i don't remember what other versions it works on. i know for a fact it works in xp pro, but it might have been left out of home. i'm pretty sure it works on 2k as well.

It works on my workstation. I run Server 2003 on it (It's configured as a workstation).

Have you tried changing your screen saver yet?

Where can I find.. I seriously am having trouble coming to WTF.com to post, I can't search for something like another antivirus very easily.. Everything is super slow..
