I hope this post is in the right place, and thanks in advance for all your help.
Well, I just got rid of a few nasty viruses, and now I am unable to forward ports. All worked fine before the virus incident. I got the virus fixed, see here:
However, things are not quite the same. I finally got to relax, and actually use the computer, to do some online racing with my buds. BUT, now, I am unable to host/ run a server; in other words my port forwarding does not work! I looked at all the settings on the router (has a password), and all are perfect. I ran port forwarding tests with PFportchecker, and they are not working. Firewall is off, and I have no antivirus running. I am running win xp os.
BTW, I have removed eset and super spyware tools that I used to eliminate the threat, just in case they may be blocking something.
Any ideas? Are there any os files that may have been deleted?
Thanks, as always!
