I recently had a horrible virus take control of my computer.. It shut off my firewall and antivirus as well as opened many ports on my system and set itself up as a server.
I'm extremely paranoid now as I didn't make a windows disc or a backup..
I formatted using the windows recovery with a fresh factory install.. I'm kind of paranoid that the recovery drive may have been altered as well so that I could be re-infected upon formatting. Is this possible? How can I be sure I'm not infected?
I've been trying to close net share as well but no luck. It's sharing all drives and remote options when I go to cmd and type net share.. I've turned off discovery service and stopped server and workstation and set them to manual in services. How can I turn that off permanently? Every time I restart the computer it's open again.
Thank you for your time!
