    Default blaster virus

    HELP!!!

    On installing a new hard drive I had to get my cable company to reboot my internet. Unfortunatly as they did the dreaded virus hit my machine. I had no idea what it was went to uninstall and the whole thing shut down.

    I had the same shell.exe message, but now whilst the computer will reboot to windows it won't open the log on page, I just get a grey screen with a large cursor on it. It won't boot to safe mode. I have tried to get it to re-load windows from the disk BUT it just tells me that my windows up date is successfull and boots up the same way. Any ideas????
