virus?

I think my PC has either been hacked or has a virus. I can access web sites, but can not print from them. Printer works fine from local computer programs.

AOL works fine, but Internet Explorer does not work.

None of the drop down boxes work here on the Planet, it goes back to the front page when I click on them. If I try and give someone rep it just goes to the top of the thread immediately when I click the box. The Clickable Smilies do not work.

When I try and go to McAfee to download, it will not let me. The page is white and says done. Same with Microsoft updates, it will not let me.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

you could always just try uninstalling the printer drivers... then reinstall..

try installing firefox

www.getfirefox.com

also update your Java and Flash to the newest versions.

see if that helps

if not...

move to linux

Slag02, the printer drivers are just one of many symptons. I worked on it several hours last night and my Wife has spent a couple of days on it. I am convinced that it has some malicious software loaded on it to make it a slave. AOL, MSN and others seem to work fine. I downloaded the latest version of IE (7) and it will not work. I tried at least a half dozen different virus and hacker programs, they all lock as soon as you try and run them.
We are in the process of backing up all of our stored files and are going to re-load windows I guess. Dell is supposed to call her tomorrow and help her with it. I did it myself on my laptop a while back, no big deal but she wants to work with Dell.
Thanks for your help. Linux, I thought it would not work with pictures?

ugh...that sounds nasty...

do you have the ability to run regedit or task manager? my parents had a virus a while back that would kill regedit, task manager, add/remove programs, etc

it also hardcoded the hosts file to point all major update/anti-virus websites to the NIC's loopback address basically making all fhe sites unreachable

try searching for the hosts file, open it w/ notepad and see if anything is pointed to 127.0.0.1

the hosts file should be at c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc

or possibly c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

depending on your OS

I can't believe the number of people here that just suggest Linux or Firefox without actually looking at the problem.

Did you ever think maybe he doesn't want to go to that trouble? Or maybe he's not computer-literate enough to even understand what you're talking about?

Hemi,

Run this program:

http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip

Then post the output here. I will tell you whether or not you have a virus.

We have not tried the disc, I do not think we have one for some stupid reason. We paid them people enough money we should have though.
