Hello, I had recent problems since yesterday night. I needed Microsoft .NET Framework so I downloaded version 3.0 service pack 1. But as I was searching for this framework, I must have downloaded in a wrong area. All of a sudden, my gmail will load to about 75% complete, then it says gmail has stopped loading and reloads again. It reloads to 75% repeatedly and then restarts again. So I did a full system recovery since my NOD32 Version 4 did not detect it, neither did my Spybot Search and Destroy 1.6.2. (I been running them side by side with no problems). So after I system restored, I plugged in my external drive (which I had plugged in during when I installed .NET Framework. I did windows update which prompt me to restart. So after I restarted my computer, I started having problems. My internet would be connected but it doesnt show the Network Connections on the taskbar. I tried to go Start -> Control Panels -> network settings and it would freeze on me at that point. Then I replugged my external hard drive, and it took about 40 mins to detect the hardware. I did a full system scan and it detected no viruses. What could this be? I'm scared to use my external now because I'm scared it might be infected and I dont want to infect my other computer. Does anyone know whats happening?
