and I am a Windows XP infectee. I became infected last Thursday, as near as I can tell, and I swear I didn't download any porn on Thursday!

I've had program(s) edit my wireless IP address, I can't reply to outlook express email, I can't get on the internet without running combofix. I'm in way over my head and I'm looking forward to becoming clean again.

Pleased to make your acquaintance!

Hello and :welcome: to Bleeping Computer.

Be sure to check out the New User Orientation and the excellent Tutorials.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Let me know if you have problems getting a signal from the mother ship after you get fixed up. I'll see if I can relay a message for you.

That's a real nice, high tech connection, Animal :thumbsup: ! How much did that baby run ya :woot:

All I do is punch a bunch of pinholes in a sheet of aluminum foil, put it over my laptop screen and go to prisonplanet.com between 12AM and 1AM. I am able to then read the Mother Ship coded transmissions :notanangel:
