Hi Everyone, Just wondering if anyone can give me a hint on what is wrong here with this PC. It's my friends computer and she asked me to take a look at it 'cos she's been having a few problems with it. I highly suspect a virus. Firstly, the PC had ESET Smart Security 3 on it, when I checked it, the update program hadn't updated since March, yet it was telling me it's totally up to date and that the updates have never been run. I go on the internet and it shows me that it's not up to date (hardly thought so), but no matter how many times I click the update button it just wont do anything. I also downloaded and put on AVG Antivirus (ok it is rubbish, but it's probably more likely to find something than a 6 month old version of ESET). Nothing. Then I notice something strange has happened to the internet - at first everything started redirecting itself to Microsoft (so if I put in Google.co.uk I'd get www.microsoft.com). Then shortly after that everything starts redirecting to Google. I presume the virus is redirecting all internet traffic, and therefore the updates that I'm getting are probably not the right updates and are useless. In addition to this WLAN Wireless config has been disabled on the computer (this is why my friend asked me to look at her PC as she could no longer get on the internet through wireless). Even when I enabled WLAN config all the Wireless points aren't there, if I try Connect To.. or even Add wireless point from "Manage my Wireless connections" I get nothing - nothing loads, the PC does nothing. I can get wired internet but no wireless. The only way I could get it to add a wireless profile is to use NETSH in command prompt to add it. I also considered that maybe this virus is intercepting the updates and that is why ESET isn't updating or maybe it's corrupted ESET. So I tried re-installing ESET (and brought it up to ESET V4). It installs fine, but again can't seem to activate updates. Last chance I thought I know I'll try with a Linux rescue CD and download the most recent updates, so I used both F-Secure rescue CD, downloaded from a virus free computer and burnt to a disc, and also Kaspersky. F-Secure took about 4 hours scanning and nothing (except a few tracking cookies which don't count). Kaspersky took 11 hours scanning and also nothing. I also tried doing system restore to remove it, but something has decided to wipe out all restore points - even the ones where I'd re-installed ESET (hmmm... no surprises there!). I did check whether or not system restore was active, and it was. I've looked through the running processes to see if there is anything that looks suspicious in there, there was only one file which is a security banking program that can carry a worm, however I've disabled that, and also scanned it with all the antivirus programs and they haven't detected anything. Anyone any ideas, my last resort is to re-install Vista, which is something I really don't want to do as she has over 50Gb of video files she wants to keep (although as the videos are from file sharing the virus is probably somewhere in there).
