hi this is on behalf of a friend, he has a very important
and powerful job and he disabled some of thier security
devices and now who thinks he may have the mydoom virus.
how can he remove the virus without using the net as his
system will not open any applications any more just the
egg timer shows and doesnt disappear but nothing else
happens. could someone tell me how to remove or check the
virus without internet access thanks. oh also this
morning when he switched his pc on an error message came
up saying that something to do with system/32 could not
be found and that he should insert the windows disc
supplied with his machine any ideas thanks really urgent
