Eduardo (Ed?),

I have fixed problems before with SFC... The problem is, virus guys
started to get tricky, and replace the copies in the SFC cache as well
as the live copies.

But it's worth a try, before a wipe/reload.

Although, when properly scripted, a "wipe/reload" can be as easy as
connecting to a network, popping in an RBFG floppy or PXE NIC, and
hitting f10 on boot up...

RIS/GPO/Scripts... Gotta love them.

Anyway, good luck,

That's what I thought. But the computer has mcafee 8.0i with the latest
definitions and did not find anything... I have also tried other
scanners but with no results...

Weird... I'll try running mmc and I'll let you know if it works, but
right now, the user just came back so my window of opportunity of
working on this is pretty gone for now! : (

Thanks for the info Glenn! I did not know sfc! But have you ever been
able to fix anything with it?

Best Regards,

Eduardo

Can you start MMC?  Start->Run->MMC...

If so, can you Open an MSC from there?  Or compose a new one?

Can you get to the display control panel through the desktop, or does
that not work either?

Smells of virii/rootkit/other nefariousness,

A couple of other symptoms of the system in question:

- None of the msc seem to work (It says the file does not exist (it
does), is not an MMC console or was created by a later version of MMC
- Control Panel does not open

If anyone has any suggestions please shoot!!! ; )

Regards,

Eduardo
