Yesterday, my wireless connection dropped suddenly.  The router and Modem appeared to be working fine, however the network I had been using was no longer available and connecting wirelessly was no longer possible.  I tried reseting my router and when I logged into my router, I noticed a strange device using the network.

 

I have since called tech support for my router and they have found various issues on my computer.  From the scans they performed they have found a keylogger, hacker and intrusions to my network.   I had reset the password for my router earlier today and within 10 minutes or so, the password was changed so I could not access my router settings.

 

I had used this site before to help with a virus on an old laptop and that had worked out great, so I was hoping for some help with this issue as well.

I had also posted a topic in the Networking forum which may or may not provide some pertinent information.

Ok even worse news is that another laptop was used on this network, and I checked Run >  eventvwr  and it appears to have numerous System and Application warnings and Errors similar to this laptop.  I do not know if that means it is also infected, but I can run through any steps needed on both systems if needed

Sorry for the delay. All the self replies make it look like you were helped. We need a new topic ....we should get a deeper look. Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.

Let me know if all went well.
