    Angry Virus deleting

    All the pictures in the "My pictures" file in windows have disapeared. When re-uploaded they disapear again, and the screensaver which they used to feed into now comes up saying "Havok." Im assuming that its some kind of virus but ZoneAlarm (updated this morning) doesnt seem to have picked it up, so was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what it is and how to remove it, or where to find more information.Thanks.

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Default Re: Virus deleting "My pictures"

    Hi

    Have you installed any new software lately?

    Had any other person have access to the PC?

    Unistalled any programs lately?

    Is there IP/URL listed in the ZA that is dubious or some new process going to the internet?

    Is there a new process component listed in the Program list in the Program Control? Any new components?

    Any new Addons in the Manage Addons in the Tools of the IE?

    To double check for viruses/malware try some online scans (use the IE for these additional scans)

    If somethings comes up, then try a HJT forum (free and excellent) such as this one

    If you find something or not find something in the online scans, please repost back. Very interested in this.
