I tried that and they say to either repair, quarentine or delete the infected file apparently you can't do any of those things with this file...I really don't want to have to format my HD it took me 35 CD-R's last time i did that
thats true SnookBooger I'd back up anything important and format the thing and when all said and done I'd also make aure the I've got some kind of a firewall and/anti-virus software on the system so I wouldn't have to worry as much
Well since u said u can't clean it or delete it. Thats pretty muchs just leaves format as ur only choice. Well Norton Personal Firewall should have block that from getting on ur system and if it do that it should be blocking from going out. Also what version of the Backdoor.Trojan as there are many versions.
Backdoor Trojans is a generic concept. What was the name of the actual virus that infected your computer?
Believe me if you have one of the “active destructive” types you should be formatting you drive now. This includes the deletion and re-construction of all you partitions as some can survive a “format”.
Some are even clever enough to write themselves to disk tracks that all operating systems can’t access or even jump into parts of the BIOS, therefore you will need the manufactures low-level format utility and before doing this re-flash your BIOS whilst there are no hard drives connected to the machine. I’ve just had a similar problem that has kept one of my machines in limbo for two weeks whilst I ordered new BIOS.
I’m not sure even now if it’s gone completely. Viruses are getting very clever indeed.
