Last night, the last thing I did before my PC (running Windows XP Professional) started acting funny was visiting this site that provides an avatar-generated software recommended by my friend. The link is http://home.mywebface.com/faceApp/index.pl - upon arriving, I noticed a lot of popups that I simply just closed. It automatically used Internet Explorer as I entered this site from Chrome. It asked me to download a toolbar in order to generate the avatar. Then my IE was starting to get heavy and felt it could hang, so I just ended the operation. And I continued doing my other works on my PC
Today when I turned on my PC, after 5-10 mins of loading into Windows it gave me the warning "Windows shutting down in 60 seconds" and it auto-restarted. I freaked out and ran MalwareBytes, SpyBot and FTS Cleaner and cleaned all the necessary infections with the internet connection off, I pulled out my LAN network cable
Then when I plugged it back in, it said "Limited or no connectivity" - I plugged in the cable into my friend's laptop and there's Internet connection so I must be the one having the problem... I restarted my PC hoping I'd get my internet connection back but with no avail..
What should I do guys?
