Well here I am again... I run XP w/o sp2 because I use firefox and thunderbird so I thought I was not as vunerable. Anyway, this system is realtively new to me as I was running 98 up until Novermber. I've had a lot of ups and downs but thought all was well until yesterday. I turned the computer off ( it had been on since jan 23) and when it rebooted, my mouse only functioned on the start menu on the taskbar. I could get a few programs to run using the alt function, so I ran my AVG free addition. This is what I found out:

c:\\windows\system32\kernel32.dll - changed
c:\\windows\system32\user32.dll - changed
c:\\windows\system32\shell32.dll - changed
c:\\windows\system32\ntoskrnl.dll-changed

It seems this information is related to the follwoing:

Trojan horse/ IRCbackdoor.sdbot.vx
Trojan horse Backdoor. delf
Trojan horse Backdoor. delf.s
Trojan horse Collected2.y

There was system volum Information included. so I guess this affects the system restor function.

I was able to delete the files but the problem persists

The only way I can turn the computer off is manually and it will not boot from the AVG rescue disk. It will not boot into safe mode because I cannot click on my account. I keep my AVG up todate yet it saw this virus and did not attempt to heal it. I also use spyware and maleware software...alll up todate.
I think my neice was on a P2P network and picked up something

I am frustrated. What happened? Can anyone help. I have no mouse and I am doing this from work. email me at [email protected] because I can read that mail on my phone or I will check here tomorrow.

PLEASE????? This is so, so sad.

Viruses are normally designed to crash a computer. not to disable hardware. what I would recommend trying to do is right click on My Computer and select properties, then select the hardware tab, and go to device manager. in device manager uninstall the mouse driver and restart your computer. when windows comes back up it will automatically reinstall the mouse driver and you will see a balloon New Hardware Installed and then u should be golden

The good news is that the Trojan I was reading in AVG was ...quarantined; the REAL problem was the mouse died of natural causes. The even greater news is that I got a wonderful new optical mouse and some more memory at a great price.
The moral of this story is ...sometimes a cigar is a just a cigar.. look to the obvious! :D
