I'm certain I got attacked by a rogue virus, and after rebooting and quickly running Superantispyware it was seemingly removed. I subsequently ran AVGFree 9.0 just to be sure. I can get downloads from AVG but not Superantispyware.
I tried to get on yahoo and google, but no luck in connecting. I opened Network Diagnostics for Windows XP, and received the message "Windows cannot connect to the Internet using HTTP, HTTPS or FTP. This is probably caused by firewall settings on this computer. Check the firewall settings for the HTTP port (80), HTTPS port (443) and FTP port (21)"
I did this...fisrt I went into advanced settings on the firewall and put in or made sure (this was last night) that they were specified........no luck.
I then went in and added the ports to the exceptions, and again no luck.
Do you have any recommendations on what I should do next? Again, I can;t download anything to the computer in question, but I can on my laptop.
Thank you very much........
