I hope someone can help - I am trying to clean up our babysitters computer that had many virus' and not virus protection. I have installed AVG 8.5 and cleaned up what it could since I can not update the software since I have no internet connectivity. I have also run a registry cleaner and looked over the HijackThis log. My wireless connection says it is connected and my other computers are connecting just fine. This is a Gatweay computer connecting to Qwest DSL and using a linksys wireless card. If anyone has any suggestions on what else I can do to fix the connection issue, that would be great. Thanks!
