Recently my computer has been lagging, running slow, etc.
I run a free virus scan at www.antivirus.com and it gives me 650 infected files, 1 worm, 39 spyware, and a security breach in a microsoft product.
My whole life I have looked down upon file sharing, and have even gave a speach as to why its bad, and hurts the [music/gaming] industry. Recently I was talking with a freind about an old game and we used to love to play called Dungeon Keeper. I have bought the game before, but misplaced my disk so i searched the web for any free version, or a direct 2 drive version where i can download it directly and pay for the game again. I couldnt find anything, and wanted to play so badly that I downloaded LimeWire and got the game. WORM_VB.AS propagates via this program, and I caught the worm. All of the infected files were in a folder supposedly called "Complete" in my Documents and Settings folder. I checked before i deleted the infected files but i couldnt find this folder. www.antivirus.com gave me steps on how to delete this worm, but the first step is to open up "taskmanager" via "Control-Alt-Delete" or "Control-Shift-Escape" keystroke. I am unable to get to my taskmanager this way, nothing comes up after performing those keystrokes (one reason i started to get suspisious). So besides trying to warn anyone out there that it only takes ONE time to catch a virus, my questions are:
1] Does anyone know anything about WORM_VB.AS?
2] Does anyone know a different way to open up my taskmanager?
3] What should I do?
Here you can read about the virus.
Other weird things have been happening on my computer aswell, like getting weird errors when trying to access a forum i've been frequenting for the past 4 years.
