Hello,
My comp is infected with viruses (got it when i visited a site that offered cracks). I have AVG anti virus(free edition),it detects viruses but even after i ask AVG to move it vault, the virus is still there. I reinstalled Xp by formating only c: drive but the virus seems to have come again even with me not going to any such sites that offer "cracks". My friend is of the opinion that the viruses have come through the folders 'RECYCLER' and 'System volume information' that windows maintains in each drive. I can delete these folders through Linux and then continue with reinstalling Xp, but i want to know if the virus infects the .exe files on other drives. The virus has been so beautifully programed that it doesn't allow me to perform online scans. Whenever i visit any site that offers online virus scan i get an error saying "Server not found". Whenever my browser starts AVG throws a warning and an ad is displayed in a new tab.

Queries: 1. Can i rescue my system now?
2. If not i want to know how to reinstall my windows without getting infected again.

But what if the virus does not allow him to install an antivirus software? If it does not allow him to perform an online scan the chances of it allowing him to install is very slim. I suggest reinstalling bro.


But guys how to reinstall windows without loosing data on other drives and without being infected by virus?
