I know there is a virus because the system is all screwed up. Programs keep popping up and .exe files do not work etc...
There is a program called HWCLOCK.exe running in task manager which appears to be malicious.
I did a low level format, reloaded everything, the computer is STILL infected.
I guess I will try going into safe mode and see if I can delete this file from there. (when I try to delete it, it does not allow me to do so from windows)
This is a really evil virus, formatting didn't get rid of it, it spreads like wildfire, anti-virus can't clean it all out. I'd love to get hold of the person that wrote it and bash there head in.
