My computer has a virus. Not detected by Norton. NOD32 found an "unrecognised virus" and deleted it. (Sent sample to ESET) However now when an in depth scan is run NOD crashes without detecting anything further.

The symptoms are:
I E crashes at any operation (open favourites, amend URL in address bar, etc.)
Email account names changed in Outlook Express to
00000005
00000006 etc.

Used Firefox to write this, that seems unaffected.

Any suggestions or advice gladly recieved

Sounds like its corrupted some files.

Try Repair XP by replacing corrupt files
Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.
