Hello, I am new here. (I hav Win Xp) (XP Firewall turn on button is grayed out)
1st day (home)
My problem is: When I dialup adsl and then go to my browser, I get internet for only a short amount of time. Then the browser stops to search through internet. If I disconnect and connect again, same thing - (I get internet connection for a short time only in my browser).
So, I made some scan for virus and spyware but everything was clean.
Next day (parent work)
The antivirus was updated at work by server. Uses proxy (things like that), but internet connection was back there I think. Then "W32.Blackmal.E@mm!enc" was detected and removed.

But I don't know if "W32.Blackmal.E@mm!enc" was the virus that is the cause of my problem. Maybe it is at the work place that the pc got the virus and removed it automatically.

Anyway at home the connection problem is still here and "XP Firewall turn on button" is still grayed out

Can someone please help me. Should I post a hijack log please? :thumbsup:

I hav been doing everything like in the link.
Spybot and McAfee AVERT Stinger found some problems.

McAfee AVERT Stinger log:
Scan initiated on Tue Feb 06 22:32:07 2007
C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\i
Found the W32/Sdbot.worm!ftp virus !!!
C:\Program Files\Symantec AntiVirus\i has been deleted.
Number of clean files: 133707
Number of infected files: 1
Number of files deleted: 1

Before that I got certain virus problem during the day: W32.Spybt.worm and w32.black.e@mm!enc.
Is it possible that the "Sdbot.worm" (detected by McAfee Avert Stinger) was the one responsible for attracting these virus?

Anyway after the "Sdbot.worm" was removed, my connection got back full.
My XP Firewall is now turned on but the button is grayed out (Before it was the turn off button which was grayed out).
I think it is Spybot who fixed that but:
1. Is it a problem that the "turn on" button is grayed out?
2. Can this "turn on" grayed button be resolved?
3. Do I still need to post a hijack this log for this problem?

Yes, continue and post a log in the appropriate forum. Another thing you can do is go to Windows updates and allow it to scan your computer for any missing security updates. Most consider Windows firewall inadequate as it doesn't prevent malware, or programs that you don't want to, to access the internet. After the Hijack This team has cleared you I would recommend installing one of the free firewalls available such as Zone Alarm.
