thank you very much. i am not getting THAT issue anymore. NOW, still, when i run AVG antivirus i STILL see that two files have been "changed," but not that they are infected at all. no antiviral, even if i turn off avg and do an online scan, shows that i am infected. but these two files are "changed:" ntoskrnl.exe and user32.dll. do you know why they are "changed?" would they have been changed by adding firefox or by using the website called www.stumbleupon.com? on top of that, i did some research at microsoft about the first changed filename, but it was not pertinent to my particular situation. however the kb article pointed to a trojan worm. but no antiviral can find one! so NOW, whenever i try to install a plugin to firefox, i get an error that says that it will not install (it gets stopped towards the end of the install) due to a 203 error. it says to look at the "error console" to find the 203 error. i have no idea where the error console is. MS does not refer to an error console. do you know anything whatsoever, or have any idea, what this could be?
C:\DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS\ALL USERS\APPLICATION DATA\GTek\GTUpdate\AUpdate\Channels\ch2\CIP\RELEASE_01_3062.EXE
seems to be a possible install directory.
Searching for Gtek online gets me:
If you've installed anything like that recently, denying it might stop whatever you installed from functioning correctly. Other than that, I don't see anything wrong with the course of action you took. Note also that the program does not seem to demand network connectivity in any way.
Seeing as you're a wireless home administrator, and many of Gtek's products have to do with wireless functions, I would look for any new additions from their product lines.
