Hello,

I had a clean computer and system yesterday...now, I'm not so sure. I must have downloaded something off the internet that caused it.

Until today, I have had no problem with my new computer. I have had it for a couple of months. The only thing VISIBLY wrong with it is that google won't even connect, and when it does and when i search for something, any of the links that google show me revert to bad sites, such as fake search engines or credit report sites. I have Antivir and it was detected 3 warnings, but supposedly there is no threat. When my internet was working, I tried to type in "bleepingcomputer.com" and the browser would not connect to the site, which is why I am on an alternate computer conducting this investigation.

If you could, please help.

-Concerned

p.s. i leave for college on monday, so please respond asap! thanks so much!

Hi all_for_dios, :thumbsup:

The only way to check it out is to download HijackThis and post the resulting scan on this forum.

You'll have to be patient though, it's a very busy forum.
