Recently had a problem with one of my computers on my home network and had reason to believe that it may have been infected with summat. I started to clean it up and all was going relatively well until I ran rootkit revealer when for some reason it decided to hang. It would not do anything, wouldn't close down, wouldn't restart, wouldn't close any windows, basically all I could do was move the mouse and click on things that didn't respond when I did!!
I left it for about 3 hours and still nothing so I ended up by, yes, you guessed it unplugging it. However, whenever I reboot now it takes ages to display the login screen as though it is trying to search for a network device or summat that it can't find. When it finally appears and I enter my username and password it gives the message "the system cannot log you on now because the domain W002 is not available.". I really do not understand. First of all I have no server so I am not on a domain, and second, W002 is the name of the computer and all computers are on workgroup MSHome. It will not even log on as the administrator but will boot in safe mode. I have tried removing the network adapter cos it seems like a device driver problem but still no joy. Please someone help.
