Taskman And Registry Virus!

March 20, 2009 at 21:35:13
Specs: Windows XP
The symptoms of the virus are as follows:
1). "Task manager has been disabled by administrator". When ever I change its settings in "gpedit.msc" it changes back to the same after some time.
2). "Registry editor has been disabled by administrator". It is also the same as the task manager thing.
3). Folder options- When check "Show Hidden" files options in folder options; it changes to "DO NOT show hidden files" Again.
4). When I insert a removable media it copies some hidden system files and some cmd files shortcut.(I saw it in some other computer).
NOTE- This virus has spread over my whole network. Even though i have a small one. I has affected 10 desktops and 2 laptops

If you happen to know the viruses name please tell that also if you dont just tell me the solution

I have tried all sorts of stuffs.
I would appreciate, If you tell me NOT to format. Beacuse if it was to format I would not post a question here.

Can you recall the last folder taht you have opened? If you d try to scan it. If the Antivirus can't delete it then just get the names of the infected file that your anti virus have found can't be deleted then research for it's manual removal. I hope this would help
