Re: Virus Brontok


If you are running XP, you need to use the restoration utility to be able to make changes, restore to an earlier point.

Remove the following registry entries.:

[user's folder]\Local Settings\Application Data\smss.exe

[user's folder]\ShellNew\sempalong.exe

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
Explorer.exe "[Windows's folder]\eksplorasi.exe"

Hope this helps,

Just unplug and plug in again ....
