HELP/MY DOOM
« on: November 09, 2004, 01:48:30 PM »
I turned on my computer and the first thing that caught my attention was a message that said my "startup" had been changed.  I know I didn't change anything in my start up.   Then, I opened my mail program and my AVAST  :-[virus alarm went off.  I click on DELETE (email message) but the alarm box won't disappear and I get a message that says... there are no more files?

I'm typing this from work because on my computer I cannot post to this forum as I can't say logged in.

Hi,

Try downloading stinger http://vil.nai.com/vil/averttools.asp from your work computer on a memory stick which has the latest mydoom varients and run the program (Pause Avast shield first) and see if it shows up anything.

There has been a new varient over the last couple of days.

Wonder if you got infected and then avast updated hence you are now detecting it??

Did you get any strange e mails over the last couple of days which asked you to click on a link??

Which Mydoom varient does avast detct?

Cheers

Jlo
