I was infected by spyfalcon a few weeks ago and I think I've sorted it using eido and smitrem. But I am having problems at the minute - my PC keeps freezing as windows (XP) is loading - it freezes on the windows logo. I can boot okay in safe mode only. This happened a couple of weeks ago coincidently? while I was infected with spyfalcon but it seemed to sort itself out - don't know how, but now the problem has come back, there is no sign of spyfalcon. I'm thinking of reinstalling windows but maybe that's a bit drastic?
Smurfmonkey, I tried sfc /scannow in the run box a window flashed up very quickly and dissapeared before I could see what it was, nothing else happened! Micklemouse and fruitbat: I have previously run these spyfalcon removal programs and they seem to have worked, but I think the freeze up problem is a seperate one.
I would think this is a driver problem, try starting in safe mode keep tapping f8 as computer is starting, safe mode top of list. In safe mode go to run type MSCONFIG press enter go to Genaral Tab, tick Diagnostic Startup. Try Restarting
Thanks, will try this tomorrow - everything is running okay this morning and I don't want to reboot and possibly have problems today as pc needed. Any idea why it seems fine after being switched off overnight?
