Web Browser: Mozilla Firefox
first of all, my brother was the last one who used the PC before i did. and when it was my turn to use it.. VOILA! viruses... how sweet
my limewire can't connect to its server and my Bittorrent cant find any seeds.. this is a virus, i think. here's the details..
so my limewire can't connect.. maybe it's a connection problem..
so what i did is to go to my web browser(to find out if i have connection problems), and there was a connection.. then i downloaded Azureus (for a test download), and i got 60kbp/s dl rate.. how can limewire and bittorrent not work?? there's gotta be some problem, right?
now, for the bittorrent, i guessed that maybe the torrent didnt really have any seeds (even though it was working fine the day before).. i dled another torrent.. a fresh and healthy one... but its still the same.. it cant find any seeds.. its just like this:
Seeds: 0(0) Peers: 0(102)
every torrent i dl is the same 0(0) seeds 0(*any integer*)
im getting really confused by then
i restarted my pc.. on the windows startup, avast detected a virus.. it was called "1.reg" and located in "C:\DOCUME~1\STAANA~1\LOCALS~Temp" .. so i moved it on the chest
now, when i used the web browser.. the connection dropped down heavily..
which lead me to restart my PC again.. then avast detected the "1.reg" virus again.. it resurrected
so i scheduled a boot-time scan with avast..
after that long wait of scanning.. avast now, didnt detect the "1.reg" file anymore.. but instead it detected "C:\a.bat" and everytime i restart, avast will always detect "a.bat" even if i move it in the chest
so now, my web browsing was also affected.. it was heavily slow
also, i found out that all hidden files cant be viewed again. i can still see my "folder options" and i can still check "Show hidden and system files"
but it immediately restarts it self to "Hide hidden and system files", it was like magic, the fact tham im losing control on my own PC is like magic
1. my pc was attacked by a virus and it did something to my registry so that how many times i terminate it using avast.. it will still show up
2. it did something to the registry so that it will activate itself or another file at my startup and mess with my connection
please. help me.. i ran out of ideas on this one
ok.. i just found out that i cant also watch videos from youtube thanks to this virus...
but when i use Internet Explorer, it shows the videos..
