View Full Version : W32.randex Worm

14-07-2005, 09:20 PM

I have a Windows 2000 PC which I share a printer on. Last week I got the w32,Randex virus and have NAV and firewall. I did what the NAV website advised to remove the virus but other computers cannot print to my printer. Looks like the C$, admin$ and IPC$ shares are missing. When I try to browse the network from an other computer I get the following error

"The server is not configured for transactions"

Microsofts advice on this error seems to be reinstall windows

Please help

Have you completely remove the virus?

Strike a light JK - "Have you completely removed the virus?"

pmutton - I would run spybot and AdAware as well and a reg clean up. Norton is vast, huge, respectable and costly, like Microsoft.

Like M$, it is also full of holes......HTH...........m :)

Consarned Administrators, I was sure that was less than 15 mins.

Now I have to type it all over again. OK. _ OK not really a malware issue - bit of a knee jerk there. Go to Trendmicro, PCpitstop or other sites that come up with a search for "online virus scan" or for more certified ones try the same search here at pressf1 or check out the FAQs for virus prevention or even " basic maintenance' or go through johnboy's post for a complete listing of online viri scans.......hth...........m :) (still don't think that was 15mins:D)

Solved this problem by installing AVG which found 2 virus that NAV dis not.
I was using NAV 2003, have now upgraded to 2005
