My husband's computer is acting up again. So he ran Spybot and it found Microsoft.Windows.IDFirewallBypass. I'm confused by what I find when I google this, so I thought I'd ask here before telling him what to do about it. He did turn off the Windows firewall the other day because we were having problems with our network, but he turned it back on after turning it off didn't help.
He's also been having trouble with his Microsoft keyboard. The programmable keys aren't doing what they are programmed to do. In fact sometimes keys that aren't programmable are acting funny....like the Caps Lock key closing down Firefox. And today he can't use Firefox at all and something is trying to dial the modem, which isn't actually hooked up to anything, but obviously something is trying to access the outside world without his permission. Is there a way to find out what is trying to dial the modem?
I'm sure I'll be posting a HJT log later today, because obviously something is seriously wrong. But for now I was hoping someone could give me some clue. Thanks!
