I have a friend that called me and mentioned that McAfee told her they could not install her virus subscription because she had a Network Attack and needed to eliminate the threats that are on her computer. I have never been a big fan of McAfee but it is a reputable company.
I am thinking that if it is a router virus that the SSID Number as well as the WPA code need to be changed. Possible just do a reset of the router and then reset.
I've always used Malawarebytes do look for threats. I would think this should be a first order to do. As of now I don't think there is any virus protection active on the computer. I can put Microsoft Security Essentials on for the time being. They have already paid for another year of protection with McAfees. Wasn't to effective as they are infected now!
I would think an online virus scan would also be effective. Trend Micro has one.
Please look at what I am thinking of doing and let me know if there are other things I should do
Thanks in advance for all of your assistance.
