Hey guys, I know that W32.Ramnit isn't such a high-risk virus (I removed this along with a Bloodhound.PDF and Backdoor.Tideserv that came with it), but a few problems remain. On an infected laptop, I cannot connect to the internet wirelessly or wired. On an infected 6 year old desktop, Taskmanager points out that a ton of resources are being taken up while no applications are running. Also, the floppy disk drive is running when there isn't any floppy discs to be found inside. On both infected computers (laptop and desktop) I discovered that I cannot open USBs that I insert (they turn into folders which I cannot open for some reason).

So, do I still have to search and destroy, or is there some settings I have to tweak?

BTW: The laptop is using an Atheros Ar5007EG network adapter. When I looked at the wireless network connection status (under support) I noticed the Address Type read Invalid IP Address, IP Address read, Subnet mask read, and default gateway displayed nothing. The same thing happened when I looked at the Local Area Connection Status.
