Below is a copy of an e-mail I sent off to DCS, to which they promptly replied - thanks guys - and rather than bug them as to reasons for this I thought I'd throw it open to the knowledgable people on these forums I'm running XP + SP2 with Office setup on RAID drives. Firefox 1.0 browser TDS3, NOD32, ZAPro and Netgear Firewalls and a few anti-spyware proggies. XP is on F:\, Definitely NO C:\ A week ago, I purchased a second hand HP 2210 printer/fax/scan/copier from a friend. Recently some of the sites I regularly visited were redirected to sites I'd never visited, namely www1.dell.co.uk and www. yves-rocher.co.uk. As my PC sometimes seemed sluggish I re-installed from an image, all OK. Re-installed the printer and updated Office - asked to restart. Immediately TDS began alarming me to infections, all on C:\ - which I could see in both Computer Management ans explorer, however when I attempted to browse I was asked to insert a disk. I could eject this "removable" disk as an option using the USB icon. When I unplugged the printer USB cable, TDS stopped reporting traces - I even managed to delete a couple of them as it was running. Any ideas as to what is going on - surely a printer can't be the source of nasties ? Any thoughts people ?
