    Ok, i don't know where this thing came from....
    i was usign avast and it did nothing...
    i uninstalled it and installed kaspersky

    now virus.win32.virut.ce has infected many exe files.
    Some important files like explorer.exe and svchost.exe
    hell even the host file was infected. After cleaning them up, they all became useless. When i tried executing explorer.exe through taskmanager, it gave me error: not vaild win32 application.

    I don't want to format coz i have very important files on my pc.
    The virus has even disabled kaspersky.... can't open it.
    Explorer.exe is not working, i can't even go through files.

    I will be doing a scan in safe mode.
    If you guys know how to get rid of it, please tell me.

    Here is what i do. When i have a bad virus i cant get off, i take that hard drive out, then i attach it to a good computer. I dont let it open up. I have some USB drive cases external, i use for this purpose.

    Then i run my virus program on that drive.It works almost every time. When it doesnt, i use the other methods the others covered. But i still take the drive out, just incase it attached to my bios some how. Or changed my bios.
