I have 3 computers. All windows computers, one XP, one Vista Business and one Win 7 64 bit.
They have all been acting strange for several weeks. Strang as in randomly won't connect to the internet. Randomly change web pages. Extremely slow internet speeds except when I am talking to tech support or running a speed checker. Random error screens and the such. There has been no pattern to it and none of the computers are doing the same thing.... other than driving me crazy that is.
I have run numerous scans. Avast, Malwarebytes, HijackThis. One found a java trojan on the Vista computer and removed it. Eset online scanner found Somoto something and a worm on the Win 7 computer. Spybot picked up some generic adware. None of that helped.
Tonight I used the Internet Explorer Manager in ToolWiz. There was a long list of "Trusted sites" and plugins that are not seen in Internet Explorer or Firefox information. Entries like flrxtools.greatnuke dot com, goldengr.hypermar dot net, toolbar.fred dot fr, and my favorite... lusty.free dot fr. world-sex.urlongs dot com was a hint that something is a miss and that I am not nuts.
I deleted the entries. I am running Malwarebytes now, but none of the typical scanners picked up anything before anyway. So what do I do?
Avast update, browers or anything else on the Win 7 computer can access the internet even though the network connection shows it is connected. The other 2 computers seem to be okay with the internet at this time.
Thanks for all you guys do!
