So let me get this straight, if I post the word "Virus" the window closes? Just to be clear!

no not if its in the body of the text!!!

I am assuming its only if its in the executable name?!

The problem is if the word "virus" is in the exectuable text of any programme he tries to run, the "Virus" his system has shuts the programme down,thus ending the ability to run anti-virus software!

Will give it another go!

The computer is acting seemingly normally but.....

Any attemt to install virus software will go like this:

-put Norton cd - it boots to install screen then immediatly closes the screen

If i search for Virus in Google the result page opens and then immediatly closes, but any other word such as clio will return a positive result.

The word Virus seems to be a trigger point for something?!

Try and do a screen shot of your task manager and all active processes, as we can help find the correct program and send to you, but you wont be able to search for the info as this kind of virus will stop you.

W32/Vanebot-H is a worm and IRC backdoor for the Windows platform.

W32/Vanebot-H spreads to other network computers by exploiting common buffer overflow vulnerabilities, including: SRVSVC (MS06-040), Psyme, PNP (MS05-039) and ASN.1 (MS04-007) and by copying itself to network shares and MSSQL servers protected by weak passwords.

W32/Vanebot-H runs continuously in the background, providing a backdoor server which allows a remote intruder to gain access and control over the computer via IRC channels.

W32/Vanebot-H includes functionality to:

set up an FTP server
set up a proxy server
spread via instant messenger clients, such as AOL, Yahoo, ICQ and MSN by sending messages automatically
set or remove network shares
disable certain security software
start a remote shell (RLOGIN)
download/execute arbitrary files
log keypresses
port scanning
packet sniffing
access the internet and communicate with a remote server via HTTP
harvest information from clipboard
