I'm running the free version of Hitman Pro - cleans tracking cookies but not any found viruses, trojans, spyware, etc.
About a year ago I picked up a virus (cleaned by one of your Bleeping Computer colleagues) but everything has been running smoothly until about three weeks ago. First, i started having issues connecting to my wifi. It happened around the time we changed wifi providers (to Comcast from Att) so i assumed there was a settings glitch. But then I realized we have 5 other laptops in use at our house but this was the only laptop with the wifi connectivity issue (my laptop is an Acer Travelmate P653).
Then a week or two ago i started seeing this posting "proxy server on this computer (user)" 127.0.0.1:7070. whenever I got my report from Hitman (Hitman pro runs in the background at startup).
I'm not sure if this is a virus, spyware or anything but I see that other Bleeping Computer members have had similar issues so I hope you can help me resolve this issue.
