It's a good bet you are.

This is way kids should not play with matches.
I'm surprised you guessed the default password.


That's a tough spot to be in.

From Sophos's site:
"Once W32/Parite-C has been executed it will remain in memory, infecting every PE and SCR file on every drive and network share."

You might have lucked out. I'd recommend trying an online scanner such as F-Secure to see how bad the infection is. Odds are you will have to recover your data and reformat. Good luck.


Parite infects all the .exe's on your box. You have no choice but to format. Once an .exe spawns, the virus code is appended to the file. You can't do anything without reinfecting yourself over and over again.
