My computer is infected with a virus
My computer is infected with the W95.Spaces.1445 virus, I checked the symantec website and it says this is a dangerous virus wich will work on the 1st of june. It prevents the computer from booting by editing the bootsector. Is it possible to remove the virus without formatting my disk/is the problem solved just by adjusting the date of my computer. Symantec doesn't give enough info. 260 files were infected...now reduced to 1 file wich I can't prevent from booting (DDHELP.exe). I used Trend-Micro Housekeeper (online scanner) to scan my pc.

Try downloading AVG and see if you can either quarantine or fix the infected file. Editing the date of your computer wouldn't be the best decision

Well, if you can get a copy of the file off of an uninfected computer, you should boot into dos (command line only) and then you can copy the uninfected version to the old one. First though, you should make a backup copy of your old one just in case.

maybe its time to get an installable AV package and keep it updated. finding out about a virus after your infected is no way to do it. most viruses dont give you any time to stop them. consider yourself lucky...this time

I had one problem like that and i boot my computer in "secure-mode" f8 while initializing and search where is the infected file, then try to delete it. Or try to delete it with a .bat file, it always works
