SP Center Virus
I was recently given a Compaq PC system that a friend of mine had replaced with a new unit. The Compag, which runs Windows 2000 Professional, had been infected with the virus shown in the screens below. I did manage to circumvent it once, but, unfortunately, I didn't leave the necessary trail of bread crumbs that would enable me to easily repeat it. I'm hoping if I can get a url bar exposed again, I'll be able to download malware to expunge the virus and give me a nice back-up computer. Any tips would be appreciated. I'm a senior citizen who jumped into networking with both feet, but never took the time to learn the computer fundamentals I need to solve these kind of problems. Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.
