:thumbsup: Does anyone know how to stop a BotNet from hacking into your PC. A BotNet from Las Vagas keeps hacking into my computer slowing things down and disabling my firewall. If anyone knows how to get rid of a botnet, please tell me.

Can you provide more information about the BotNet? What program is alerting you to its presence? Is there a more specific name provided for the botnet?

What OS (Win XP/2000, etc) are you using? What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans? Have your tried doing your scans in "SAFE MODE"?
