  1. I've been battling with a virus on a mates computer for the best part of the day, on boot up a black box comes up with c:\windows\systems\cmd.exe
    with in said box the following message comes up:

    c/mydocuments/shutdown 00


    On the main admin sign in it then shuts down, on the other systems it just keeps trying to run it then says it doesn't have the authorisation, can run AVG but can't quirinte or delete these files as I can only run AVG in the non main admin sign in

    Thinking I'm going to have to wipe it clean and reinstall?

    Thanks in advance
