Hello all!

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!

In your router config, you will be port forwarding to the ip address of your pc. I would check to see if your ip address might have changed on your pc. Let me know if you need help on how to do that...
