The guy possible had multiple virus doing different things to his computer if his antivirus wasn't up to date, and the Sassar virus could have just been one of many virus loading when his windows started.
Did you remove all the extra programs from starting up before trying to remove the sassar virus.
I can remember I was trying to revove a virus on a system and the symptoms was when windows started certain programs wouldn't run because the path had been changed. When I executed the program it would also execute something like kill -Silent, and this wouldn't allow me to run the programs all it would give me is an egg-timer.
I work in Technical support for BT Yahoo Broadband and had a call from a =
guy who appeared to have the sasser, the system was shutting down when =
trying to access websites, and I attempted to fix the problem using =
CTRL+ALT+DEL and kill the lsasss process, however, when I do that, Task =
Manager does not appear. I get an egg-timer for about a second and it =
disappears. A quick google did not find me mention of a variant of =
sasser which killer Task Manager.=20
Have I found a new variant, or is this already known?
