Not sure how to describe this. I installed a clean copy of windows 10 (i.e. not doing an upgrade or keeping old files; ssd was formatted from scratch). I've a MSI z170a motherboard and the ethernet driver is on a cd (along witha whole bunch of other software). Since I'd already done a post test on the mobo, I decided to just plug everything in to the case and then that way it would be just a matter of loading the drivers and software (rather than having to constantly move the case, unplug things, plug them back in, etc.).
Anyway, because the motherboard's ethernet driver is not loaded, I shouldn't have been able to get online and yet the second my computer kicked on, my router kicked on. I checked the drivers and there were some intel drivers loaded so I thought maybe Windows 10 comes with some generic network drivers. But then I tried to set up my router and it wouldn't let me set up my ip address and kept saying that the website (the cd that came with my router) was corrupted.
Windows Defender, of course, has found nothing. I have spybot S&D and Norton's 360 as well but they are also coming up empty after i've been able to get them to download. However, there are some obvious glitches when I try to get both of them to update; so I'm not sure if either are actually able to do what they're intended to do. Any suggestions are appreciated.
