My PC is infected with a virus. It is popping up with "Your system is
probably infected with latest version of Spyware.cyberlog.X.
When I checked with Process explorer; it showed that one process is running
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\advpackf.exe" which has written many entries in Regedit.
I have killed the process and deleted all the entries in registry editor, I
Strange thing is when I search on C:\WINDOWS\system32\ for the file
advpackf.exe even after unhiding all the files. It fails to show up, however
if I run the C:\WINDOWS\system32\advpackf.exe from the Run menu, it again
starts all the popups and tries to change the start up page of browser.
After this virus, I am unable to start Notepad.exe, after starting Notepad
immediately exits by itself.
