Remedy for "Trend Chipaway Virus" Boot Virus?


Recommended Posts

Hello and hope this finds you all well.

On my old Windows 2000 computer, which I still use occasionally for some old programs, etc.

Here are the DDS logs. Thank you in advance for your help. Please note I have altered a couple of places where my name appears.

Hi Thank you for the response. Here is what I see when I boot this computer:

On start-up of the computer, a red screen with the following message is displayed "Trend Chip away Virus has detected a boot virus" and further following information is displayed, "Complete virus protection for the enterprise go to Trend Micro www.antivirus.com."

Just the fact that it doesn't boot properly.

Another issue I'm having, which may or may not have to do with this. Since this boot problem. I have had two separate network apadtors (one on the motherboard and a replacement PCI card) fail, without good reason. I'm wondering now if its connected or not.

Thanks kindly.

I didn't realize that uTorrent was illegal software. In fact uTorrent has a lot of uses other than piracy. I use it to trade non-commercial amateur recordings with communities that strictly forbid uploading commericially published recordings. I have automated this process with virus scanning every new download and I have never downloaded an infected file from these communities.

Is uTorrent illegal software or is it simply presumed to be used for illegal purposes?

Thank you kindly.
