after a few weeks of scrabbling around sorting out a few perceived sceurity issues with email etc - yesterday I belive I uncovered a big problem and need help please.
Hopefully I'm writing this from a clean machine as I beleive both desktops at home are compromised.
Main PC runs XP and has connectivity via ethernet cable via A bt Home Hub2. Other PC's run through wireless connections off this.
Yetsrday whilst looking at my network connections I noticed something called "Internet GATEWAY" above my LAN icon.
It showed that I had been connected for over 2 days(just over 2 hours for LAN) even when PC turned off and was sending /receiving lots of packets and seemed much faster than my LAN. problem: I click on this & it wont let me disconnect or look at properties / settings - I get a warning to say "connection is currently busy"..............I'm really concerned that this is someone else on my PC - can this be right? how do I resolve it? and is this a matter for the Police?. Surely if its my connection I should be able to view details & edit? I really am concerned.Other symptoms I have noticed - my windows log on "sound" has dissapraed & in event manager - there are no security logs - only one since 2006. PC very slow. Have run SuperAntispyware - no issues having removed a disable security centre option a few days ago. Also malwarbytes found no issues. But I remain convinced something is not right. Really gratfeul for help guys. Am at my wits end. Very garteful for anyones help. I'm assuming my PC and internet connection has been hijacked/compromised. Somebody mentioned that this could be simple as my router + something to do with UnPp settings?. Thanks. Septarelt on other desktop -I keep getting Adobe flasplayer installer pop up - cant detect virus but it keeps cominge every few minutes . Thanks for help.
