Good Morning (from here in the UK)
Forgive me - my IT knowledge is somewhat lackingso this may be a silly question. brace urself.
I'm currently going through the steps on http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html
as my first attempt at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/virus-removal/remove-system-check
failed... and as you may guessi am turning on my windows XP firewall (i do believe i had one in place previously via AVG)
Although some of the exceptions to allow are common sense, others have absolutely no meaning to me. can someone please advice, should i allow the exceptions for:
slp_port(427) UDP and TCP, and UPnP framework?
To assist we do have a wireless hp printer, i do usually use uTorrent although not since getting this malware (this malware appears to have seeped through while uTorrent was off and i had multiple google image tabs open in firefoz)and the internet is via a router controlled by my brother.. who has tried to fix teh pc and basically said give up and buy a mac.
for the time being i am going to go ahead an allow these (seeing as firewall was off completely previously) but I would be grateful for any advice.
