I know im infected. First of all, I ALWAYS have the little windows security alerts telling me that my virus protection is not found, and that windows defender is off. When I try to turn either one of them on it fails. Also, I use avira antivir, usually its on and running fine (although windows security center still reports that it isn't) but right now its off. I can't turn it on because the "enable on-guard protection" is greyed out from avira, and safe mode / restarting doesn't fix it. I am using vista ultimate.
Second, I've run TrojanHunter 5 (is this a legit program?) last night and it detected several trojans: Generic.Agent.C and Generic.PolyCrypt. Dangerous trojans? The thing is that the Generic.Agent.C is my Alcohol 120% which I've used all the time and is a very important program for me. When I healed it alcohol stopped working, so I rolled back the system so I still have that trojan, which im not sure if its a threat or a false alarm or what.
Third, I can't receive wireless internet. Im using my friends laptop right now and im connected to the same wireless network, I just can't get it on my desktop anymore. My windows network center, and my sidebar all say im connected with excellent signal strength, but I can't connect to the internet, I can't connect to my router adress, and I can't even ping the router.
Im not sure if this is the cause of the internet problem, but yesterday when I got home from school I was searching for spyware and virus scanners and I came across this guys post: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qi...02115550AANSmcm
. Although im not having a sidebar problem, I thought id try some of the malware/spyware removal tools somebody suggested. So I clicked on the links for the superantispyware, spywareterminater, afterdawn, and vinduflux. Thats when my internet stopped working. Today I came home from school and my internet was working, so I thought id give those same links a try again, and my internet crashed again with the same results. Can somebody tell me if its my computer or if its those links or whats going on here?
I was going to post my HJT log file but It looks like its not allowed in this forum so I should post it in the other forum.
