msblast.exe virus problem-help please
My system is running on Windows 2000.It was infected my msblast.exe and mslaugh.exe .Therefore my system suddenly became very slow.
I had them remove from the registry entries and I have deleted msblast.exe and mslaugh.exe from the Winnt folder.But still my computer is experiencing the same problem.
What should I do now?Is formatting the hard disk is the only remedy for this problem?(But I don't want to lose some important files).can anyone help me by giving a valuable remedy.
Thanks in advance!

Explorer not responding!
I tried the scanner suggested by you,but that din' thelp much.Though my system's performance has improved it still experiencing problems.
It is working well for some time but suddenly it slows down.The message 'Explorer.exe is not responding' is then displayed when i try to log out.Then I am forcrd to restart my computer.Does this mean that the virus has not been destroyed?Has it spread to all the drives?Is formatting my hard disk is the only remedy?

I think that this error message can probably be caused by lots of things, not just viruses. I believe there may have been a patch to solve this problem - make sure that your computer is up to date at http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com

Internet Connection problem
Sorry for the late response.
I tried to connect to the Internet for Windows update.As the sysem is very slow it took a hell a lot of time and it takes hours to open a web page and after some time the connection gets disconnected.
Suddenly the message 'SVCHOST.EXE' error is displayed and after that the hyperlinks doesn't work.
What should I do now?
