My first post.
Hope you can help.
I`m running a dual boot Win 7 64 bit Ultimate / Win XP pro on seperate harddrives.
I stupidly ran an .exe file on my Win 7 and a box came up in a foreign language, restarted itself and changed my UAC settings.
Now I cant connect to the internet on this boot, my XP seems ok so I know the connection is working.
Norton Internet Security is Installed but this didn`t seem to stop it.
I cant run a virus scan, as it keeps asking to connect to internet to update itself before it can begin.
My connection icon on taskbar has a red cross through it and says no connections are avaliable.
I`ve even bypassed the wireless and plugged the PC directly into my router, this hasn`t helped.
In device manager no network controller drivers are installed.?
I looked in recent history in Norton and it said it found Hacktool.Rootkit, but don`t know if it delt with it, or if I still have it.
my spec is.
ASUS A8N-SLI SE ACPI BIOS Revision 0502 motherboard
4 x 1 GB DDR400 memory sticks.
Win 7 64 bit
2.53 gigahertz AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core (4800+)
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 [Display adapter]
Creative SB Audigy 2 ZS (WDM) soundcard
