This is my first ever post of any kind on the internet...exciting (i think...little paranoind here...)
I haven't (knowingly) had a problem for years. I have a Linksys router and free ZoneAlarm installed. I keep the window patches updated. I have been lax with scanning my machine(s) but after this I think I will do much better.
This install of Windows2000Pro is about 2 yrs old and I may be due for a nuke and pave anyway.
I do some online banking and such and am a little concerned about that.
I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware program once and it fixed my problem. I also ran dds.scr and am hoping for the "all clear" and any other good info you may have.
Hope I haven't forgot anything.
