Can't Download Anything, Net Slow...
Posted 12 June 2004 - 03:24 PM
I've near ripped my hair out searching the registry, going through pages and pages of Symantec searches, trying in vain to download virus and spyware software... nothing seems to work. Can anyone help me, please? I can't post a HijackThis log, as I can't download it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try CTRL ALT DEL, also known as the Microsoft salute, and see what nonsense is running beside system Tray, explorer, Iexplorer, rnaapp... maybe a modem is listed or something else You use. But if you have much adware on your system unchecked and no firewall... yeah you're going to be very slow. They're all calling home and using your bandwidth.
It is possible you have a Trojan. If nothing You have will run, get on another person's computer, search for "Stinger" by Avert. It will fit nicely on a floppy and most Trojans, virus don't prevent it from running. It's about 800k
Let me know what you have running when you press CTRL ALT DEL.

Thanks for your help. Sometimes the solution is in the last place you'd expect. (And it makes for a very long night.)
I'm a happy girl now, so I'm going to bed!
