Intemap mephisrnet explorer?
« on: May 13, 2004, 02:33:23 PM »
Lots of problems...

Let's start with one obvious one. I believe I have a virus. I would normally just run Norton Antivirus, but that's not available to me at the moment, and I'm not having luck with online scans.

One odd thing is that my Internet Explorer (6.0) has been renamed Intemap memphisrnet explorer. Other info is that I'm running Win98.

Anyone know what this is?

    smirks......do you have any idea which virus you might have .......go to
    http://securityresponse.symantec.com/

    there a number of removal tools there to use.......
    It might also be a good idea to D/L .....Zone Alarm (free fireawll) ....you may then be able to catch the virus attempting to send out its bugs to other computers

    If you don't know the answer, it isn't a dumb question.

    On my 11th attempt, I finally managed to run Norton's online virus scanner all the way without my computer crashing.  Only one trojan, W32.HLLW.Chemsvy, from a file I downloaded the other day...after the onset of my computer problems. From what I've read, it's pretty benign, so I doubt it was the source of my problems.

    I guess I'll have to look at software and hardware issues now.

    Thanks for your help :)

      smirks.....did you manage to get rid of the trojan?
      Download and run trojan remover.....it works great , but is an evaluation copy ...only good for 30 days .

      Does your p/c shutdown on fairly regular time frames....
      because you have virus in there as well that causing that , unless you have software conficts which are causing this.

      let us know ,

      Oh, getting rid of that particular trojan was easy. It's just a matter of deleting the infected files. I'll keep that program in mind though.

      I think my pc problems are unrelated to the virus. I've been having several weird Windows problems...my quick launch toobar will disappear, or I'll start getting messages that my pc is low on resources when I'm not running a lot of programs. And for some reason, installing the new Windows update makes Explorer crash. Maybe I have a corrupted windows file or two.

      Bleh.

      Thanks for your reply. I uninstalled and reinstalled IE6. This seems to have gotten rid of the problem. (For now...) I downloaded CWShredder and everything looks okay. I was negative for trojans or worms on the online scan above and Norton AV.
