    Same folder name virus in windows xp

    I am using windows xp from last few months but haven't faced any such issue before. It has a Pentium 4 2.4 GHz with 512 MB of RAM and an 80 GB hard disk. I am using a broadband connection. It has been attacked by any virus,i guess because i am able to find an executable file with same name as root folder.What should i do to get rid of this problem?

    Actually your computer has been infected by a virus called "W32.traxg@mm". It is a kind of worm which sends itself to all addresses in the Microsft Outlook address book. However it doesn't create much harm. To remove this worm,install a good antivirus software and do a full scan. Disable the System Restore by navigating to Control Panel>>System>>System Restore and check the box titled as "Turn off System Restore on all drives" and click on "Ok". Once done,restart your computer in safe Mode. Now open registry editor and navigate to "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Cur rentVersion\Run'. In the right pane,you will find "TempCom"="%WinDir%\Fonts\<randomname>.com" option. Just delete it. Here randomname can be any name.Once done,close the registry editor. If the worm has changed few settings then restore the default settings of windows explorer. To do the same,navigate to Tools>>Folder Options>>View and click on Restore Default button. Finally click on Ok button.

    There is a dfinite infection from a virus or worm that sets in the root of the kernel and infecting the windows to it's tune.

    You must have an antivirus with complete features, such as antivirus-antispyware-malwarebyte-worm and trojan killer install it in your windows clean the system with it, keep its virus definition updated and protect your system always from such invations.

    Buy a complete antivirus rather than the trial versions, which have limited features.
