Yes, I believe that is the LoveLetter virus. Get a scanner and get rid of it. And yes, all your files are gone, deleted and overwritten by copies of the virus.

Those files are gone:(

Start downloading some more, but after downloading and before you open any file from p2p networks, scan them with a virus checker, sorry:(

now go forth and get some tunes :D

also you might want to consider changing your sig. it's rather long, and you use caps, which means your hollering :cool:

Your probably going to have to remove it manually, follow the instructions at:

Norton Antivirus

the instruction to remove it manually are at the bottom, also the tool to remove it is listed there also, but it sounds like it doesn't work on your machine, just try to remove it manually,

and install one of the firewalls listed on the page also, some of them are free.

good luck :D

The computer tends to lag when i am posting or typing something on the internet like an email and stuff like that, i make sure to only run one program at a time, and usually the internet or aol is when it tends to lag.

When i mean internet i mean internet explorer, when ever i go to type a post like now it stalls, refreshs the page if i type more than a word, it stops constantly when i am typing, in such a pain in the @$$ cuz it takes like a half hour to post something. Just couple of mins. ago i tried posting from aol and it said not responding after a couple of words. It never used to do this before i had the viruses. I dont understand i am virus free, and i reinstalled xp and it's still lagging! i even got norton utilites to fix up the any problems but it still lagging, what should i doand

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
