I have a desktop XP unit with McAfee Security software coming up for renewal at the end of the month. I started getting alerts that I was not fully protected a few weeks back...but when I hit click on "fix" I received another error message that I have "too many problems to fix'. I figured with a Linksys wireless secured router I would be OK until I picked up the 2008 version of McAfee this month.
I'm writing on a laptop that has no problem getting on the internet so I do know the problem is only with my desktop and not with my cable provider.
I also have a memory stick that I can store data on ...so my "I.T. Guru" suggested that I check this site as he had a very bad virus that took about 10 days to eliminate...but with the help of "CRUNCHIE" he has solved his son's PC crisis.
The big problem I have encountered started last night when I hit an unwnanted link that all of a sudden had a screen with an "Active X" download. I immediately hit the close tab. It would not close and the program appeared to be loading on it's own. I then went to
"Cont/Alt/Delete" and finally got back to a real screen.
Ever since I have not been able to acess the internet from either I.E. or Mozilla Firefox...
Any help would be appreciated...
