If PC reboots, I have to go into Tools>Internet Options>Advanced, and then "Enable Phishing Filter" (it disables it). Also in that section the selection for "Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks" is greyed out.
Also, in Ctrl Panel>System>System Protection, I had to disable "Allow remote assistance connections to this computer" on the Remote tab of the System Properties window.
In Ctrl Panel>Network & Sharing Center, had to turn off File Sharing. In Network Properties it had File & Printer Sharing enabled. Terminal Services keeps re-enabling itself. There is a Public Desktop, etc., etc......................
Anyways I know it's infected/hacked (will post more later), but my question for now is:
If I hook up my new printer/scanner/fax/copier to the computer in order to print a document, is there a chance the malware/whatever could get into the printer's memory & remain resident there? (I did stop the Print Spooler service.)
Edited to add: Of course I'll unhook the ethernet connection first.
