[Edit: Restored the laptop - please disregard. Thanks.]
This is an old asus eee pc (1000he) running xp sp3
Here is what happened:
Avast! antivirus went missing
Firewall missing (Zone alarm)
Startup in safe mode
I only use this laptop occasionally to program radios. Each time it is powered up, there are updates. I did notice something was extracting (box with progress bar) after downloading some software.
Definitely downloaded something that I didnt want.
Any ideas what to do here?
[Edit -looks like Im in the wrong subforum]
