Garry's mod annoying virus

I was on this server a while ago. It said 40 players but there were only like three ppl. It wouldn’t let me leave the server. I tried everything, then the mouse started freaking out. i had to restart the computer or log off. I logged off. But when i got back on, i got a thing that said i had to remove C:\Windows\system32 est.bat

Me being stupid with computers, and being a woman, my dad tried today finally, but no such file was located. It’s annoying, because every time i log on, it gives me that message and media player opens plays an irritating song ;-;

Being a woman has nothing to do with skill at computers.

Look in

C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

For a .bat file

Ok, then. my new excuse is i’m 15. And dumb :stuck_out_tongue: I know other stuff, but nothing about control prompt or viruses and directories

Is because the batch file isn’t on system 32, is on another directory

It’s empty


C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Start Menu\Programs\Startup

Default user is a hidden folder, you will need to change some options if you can’t see it.

what options? i am noob when it comes to finding folders like that

no i did it. but it’s still empty

I’m not on XP atm, so it is just going to be a rough guess

Right click in the window at

C:\Documents and Settings

Then go to ‘Properties’ or ‘Folder options’

Click around the tabs until you see something that says ‘Display hidden folders’ or something similar

If you are on Vista, look for

C:/ProgramData/Microsoft/Windows/Start Menu/Programs/Startup/test.bat

HA. I FOUND IT :smiley: maniacal laughter

ok then.

haha i just went to computer and searched “startup”


k i restarted my computer and it’s fine. :slight_smile:

i think. lol
