Default ARRRGGHHH! My mini died from a virus - 12-03-2008, 08:22 PM

While browsing around for a battery meter widget I picked up some virus called ispynow that has completely trashed my original XP install. :evil: :evil: :evil: At first, it just stopped me from getting online. Now I can't even boot to my desktop. Other than ObjectDock, I didn't have too much on the SSD so I'm going to wipe it and reinstall xp.

I sincerely hope there's a special circle of hell set aside for the crap*******s that create stuff like this.

why not see if you can boot into safe mode and run something such as malwarebytes to remove it?
