    Event logs say anything?

    Have you tried an online virus scanner?

    What antivirus and anti-malware do you use?

      You forgot one Gareth. How are your backups? This doesn't look good.

      2 2 was 1 2.

        True... although if someone doesn't have backups, I'm quite happy to let them fall into their own grave. I'm too tired to push them in myself after the weekend I've had.

          So definitely too tired to pull them out

          Shivesh, had you installed any new patches when this problem appeared?
          What AV do you run? Is it fully up to date? Do scheduled scans report anything?
          Can you restart in safe mode and do a virus scan from there?

          It could be that you have a virus that is re-infecting from the LAN. If so, you will need to shut everything down, clean computers separately (one by one) offline and then eventually bring everything up again.

            Hi,

            You can have a look at the Browstat.exe which you can find in the RK tools.
            Has anything changed on or before the 25th regarding the NetBIOS name resolution process nodes? ie WINS or client configuration?

              Have you checked for viruses using a couple of scanners???

              Do your clients automatically update for them??? Are they updating properly???

              My first thought is that it is a virus of some sort. Have you done the manual check of looking for rogue services, checking the startup in both the registry and the startup folder???

              You say you've checked but what on earth have you done?? Adding this information will help your cause here.
