I start by trying SAFE MODE and using scanning tools that I installed before the issue or use a parallel install of Windows 2000 to scan the drive.
SOBER is quite old and stopped by free tools such as AVG and ZONE ALARM so I must ask if you can share your thoughts about how got on the machine.
This morning go to turn on my work computer and it just restarted on its on for like 15minutes before loading windows....I use windows 2000 Pro. Also when it finally loaded first it was running 100% CPU usage so i took the chance to restart it and it did the whole restarting thing until it loaded windows. A couple of times it even restarted on its own while i was working on it. So i did a virus check and adware and cleaned it up....the virus scan found 3 infected files 2 were infected with WORM_SOBER.S and the other was IRC_ZCREW.B, i have deleted those files and quarantined what adware found and still having the restarting problem. Also, after it load windows i get a lot of errors saying this program has generated errors and will be shut down...like whenever i use internet explorer also for the first time it did it to the explorer.exe file.....please help! Any advice or help will be greatly appreciated.
