For a while now an unauthorized second internet connection (internet gateway) connects to my pc instantly i turn off or reduce the security level of my firewall (Zone Alarm). Internet activity goes into overload and I have no idea whats being sent out or coming it. I disconnect my connection immedialtly and have to reboot the router or system. It is affecting connectivity to the internet and also freezes MSN Messenger on log in. Ive tried several good spyware progs and have found nothing.

Ive been searching other forums but have only got even more confused. I have downloaded HIjack this and Spybot S&D and need help in analysing the results. If all else fails i will re-install Win XP but am very reluctant to do so.

Please help.

Win XP (Service PAck 2)
Adsl Router
Wired Broadband connection.

Welcome to BC jonbassett :thumbsup:

I suggest you follow the directions in this guide. Then create an HJT log, you will find the directions in the guide.

Create a new topic in this forum, not here and give it a good descriptive title. Briefly summarize what the problems are, what you have done to try to solve it, and what worked and didn't work and paste in your HJT log.

After you post your log, DO NOT make any further changes to your computer: deleting files, editing the registry, using special fix tools, installing or uninstalling software etc. as this will make it more difficult for the HJT team to help you.

Please be patient as the HJT team is very busy. DO NOT bump your log as the team may think that someone is already helping you. If you have not had a response in five days, add a response to the five days no response topic and paste in the link to your thread.
