Ok, so, as fas as I know at least, this all started this morning. I was surfing around the web on my usual sites (facebook, myspace, gmail, etc). Decided to take a diversion and check out a streaming video site. Well, I got there and the site displayed a message saying that my computer was running a DOS attack and therefore could not be on their site.
Well, I thought this was strange, so I ran the Microsoft Onelive (or whatever its called) scan of my computer. I then left for work. I got home and this is when things got really bad.
When I arrived home the scan results stated that it found 9 conditions, 2 critical conditions, and fixed 4 of them. It said the rest could not be fixed. I said "ok, well, that sucks" and then proceeded to try to get online to see what the problems were and what to do about them. I then realized that I could not connect to the internet at all. I tried a number of URLs, and a couple other internet applications and no connection across the board.
I then decided to run spybot to see if it could get rid of more than the microsoft program did. Spybot won't even open. I double click the icon, you hear the hard drive start to spin up, and then nothing. Its the same problem with any other anti-virus software too.
What do I do, Help!!!
