ok what you need to do is calm down

1 what does this script do to your computer? nothing.. then just leave it

2 try creating a script to end you script 0.o

3 system restore is your using windows xp...

4 if it doesnt work your screwed!!!!

Just use recovery console, and see if you can delete it. Or a BartPE disk may do the job as well.

Edit: Task Manager should kill it anyway. Then delete it.

Not malicious? Apparently it has a life of its own if it's gone astray and making the author all freaked out. That's pretty darn malicious if you ask me.

explorer is probably using it. If so, just open a command window, shutdown explorer, then delete the file.

Hi,

I had a similar problem once with a file which I couldn't delete because it was used by some strange process. I managed to figure out which one it was with the help of Process Explorer (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/freeware/procexp.shtml). That way I could kill the process and delete the file. Just like you I tried really everyhting else before that with no luck.

Hope this helps

Alex

all the script does is copy itself to system 32 .. write reg entry to boot on startup and delete the original file .
