The admin from a forum I regularly post in said that my IP address comes up twice on every topic I view (mine is the only one that does this). It shows that my username is viewing a topic, then a guest with my same IP is also viewing.

I just recently removed the virus that took away my control panel, as well as one that made any ads on pages very slow to load. I have *no* idea how to fix this, as I've run symantec and adaware which have not seemed to help.

I'm clueless - and about ready to throw my laptop out the window! :thumbsup:

Thanks in advance for ANY help you can provide!!

Welcome to BC MamaE

That sounds like a problem with the other forum you visit. Did you follow up with their administrator to try and resolve the problem? Is this issue happening at any other forums?

It certainly does not sound like anything related to the malware issue you had. That's probably why your anti-virus and Ad-aware scans are not finding anything.

Evidently my IP is the only one showing up as my user name as well as a "guest". She thought I was being "followed" for lack of better terms!

How did you get rid of the malware?
Did someone log on remotely to your computer to help you or for any reason?
Have you looked to see if there is a new guest account on your computer?

I have run Adaware and Symantec to get rid of anything on the system. I can't imagine anyone would be logged on remotely, although this is my work laptop that I use from home (the network is in Philly, whereas I am a few cities away). No new guest accounts on my computer either.

How about posting a Hijack This Log and let the experts have a look. The instructions for posting are in the link
below. DO NOT Post the log in this forum. Post it in the HJT Forum.

Your log is posted here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the member assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic until you are cleared by the HJT Team. If you still need assistance after your log has been reviewed and you have been cleared, please PM me or another moderator and we will re-open this topic.

Thanks for your cooperation and good luck with your log.
