- hi all,
My kids got a worm on their machine called by many names, but the
main seems to be W32/Apology. The main file that
creates/corrupts three others are mtx_.exe. It creates
ie_pack.exe and corrupts win32.dll and wsock32.dll, plus messes up
a number of other things.
My problem is after deleting them and emptying trash, they come back.
I cannot delte them from does it seems because when I use say:
I get a file does not exist. It only works on wsock32.dll. In
fact, if I try to find it using windows Find, I'm told it is not
there when I can see it. No typos, I've done it 25 times if I've
done it once.
Before I reformat, does anybody have a fix. Win 95 machine.
I did try a fix I downloaded ap?????.exe with some arguments that
I was to use from DOS and did but get a message back saying this
is not an NT machine or that is the way I took the message.
I tried using a Sohio something or another Virus program that
correctly identifies it and seems to make it so I can delete the
files, but once run it gets corrupted. Plus, I have to guess at
what the thing is saying because all the text in the windows is
all garbled. It comes in many languages, but this is not a
language. <g> I cannot tell how to even install in English
although at time I do see English.
