    I'm not really answering your question, and I'm not exactly an expert when it comes to hacking, but...

    I run XP on my computer. If you run a different version of Windows, this path may vary.

    Firstly, on your desktop click Start\Control Panel\System. Now click on the Remote tab.

    Make sure there is no tick in the box labelled "Allow Remote Assistance invitations to be sent from this computer".

    Make sure there is no tick in the box labelled "Allow users to connect remotely to this computer".

    Now click the Apply button, then click the OK button and return to your desktop.

    Also, whenever a web site asks if you wish your password to be remembered, always say no.

    If you run Firefox, click Tools\Options\Security. Under Passwords, make sure there is no tick in the box labelled "Remember passwords for sites". Now click the OK button.

    If you use a different browser, I'm sure there will be similar changes you should make.

    Once that's done...

    Try this:

    Boot your computer to the Safe Mode menu screen. You do this by repeatedly pressing F8 as soon as you boot up. Once there, use the arrow keys to highlight Safe Mode with Networking. Continue to boot from there, by pressing Enter. You will now see some drivers being loaded. There will be a pause at some point. This usually lasts for no more than 30 seconds.

    Now download this package.

    When you click on the download button, wait for a few seconds and the download box will appear, without you having to enter your name or email address.

    Save it to your desktop, unzip it...click on start.exe...then click on Emergency Kit Scanner. Wait for it to open (this may take a couple of minutes), then get updates and run a Deep Scan:

    Hope this helps.

    A virus has to be executed by a file downloaded and ran on your computer. If you scan all of your files using AVG or another good antivirus, it will be able to tell you which files are infected, and get rid of them before you copy your files to the new computer. This way the malware on your computer will be eradicated, and not transfered to your new computer, and will hopefully not give you any more problems.

    But did you know that a lot of viruses are downloaded when movies, music, applications, and other things are illegally downloaded off the computer.

    So if you did get the virus from illegally downloaded material, then good riddance.

    hi marc, if your computer is sharing files yes it can get the same virus. what i recommend is for you to take both of your computers with all of the software to a computer repairman and have him format the hard drive and anyone that is getting into your computer will be removed along with the viruses. he will not charge you a lot to do this for your computers. sorry that you are having this problem but he will improve your databases in both computers through your odbc it is well worth the money. good luck i hope i was helpful to you

    Source(s): i recommend that you change your internet provider to dsl broadband it will cut back on all of those viruses. take care :)
