I was just surfing the web and suddenly my internet stopped working. I was downloading something from megaupload but i don't think that's the problem because i've been downloading from megaupload for the past few days..

I tried restarting my router twice but nothing has happened. I am now using another laptop in the house which uses an internal wireless card to connect to the router and everything is fine. My laptop that has no internet now uses a netgear wireless adapter to connect to the router, but i dont think my adapter is the problem either.

I checked my event viewer and under application there is a warning event ID 1517 NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM something about an application was still using the registry during log off. i researched this and some people recommended downloading UPH cleaner..i downloaded it and ran it, but my internet still does not work. Although, after i ran it, under application, it said

"The following handles in user profile hive .... ......... have been remapped because they were preventing the profile from unloading successfully:

svchost.exe (1024)

I've had no problems shutting down and logging on..i dont know what's going on! please help!

Hi xstarsunx, Welcome to BC.

That site, megaupload, isn't that kind of like a P2P site? I don't really know, I gave it a look and it seems that anyone can upload and download just about anything there.

You may well have polluted your system there. I would suggest that you do the 'copy' thing to this post then dash over here --> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/ <-- start a new topic and do the paste thing in it to save time.

Don't post any kind of logs there unless one of the HJT Team members or a Moderator asks you for something. There's a good chance that you've infected your PC by using that site.

Good Luck.

Does your ISP have any download limits?
