I just finished getting assistance in the infected/virus forum. After all the various scans and tests, it appears that my computer is not infected with a virus after all. Evidently we have discovered that my hard drive has many problems and issues that will require a new hard drive. However, before I purchase a new hard drive, there is still some data that I would like to save to a portable hard drive and some other data that I would like to save to my isp storage. The problem is is that I am unable to connect to the internet. The Forum Tech from the Virus Forum directed me to this forum for further assistance. I will paste the link from the virus forum that has the notes and scan logs for your review.
I appreciate any help you can provide, Thank you!
