I just got hit by a VERY nasty web virus. Well not exactly a virus. I clicked a web link, and the next thing I know, this program called 1on1.exe is running on my system. There is now a hidden file 1on1.exe in C:\Windows, and my network connection has been terminated and redialed to one of those ridiculously expensive sex download numbers for which it has added a new connection. It has also put an entry in my registry to automatically run 1on1.exe on start up, but most sneakily, it has turned the modem sound off. The intent is clear. Every time I start my computer, it automatically, and with no sign of anything happening, dials up a really expensive phone number.
If I wasn't so clued up computer-wise, I could be seriously in trouble (financially speaking) in no time at all. So much for Kaspersky anti-virus. Personally speaking, I didn't even think it was possible!!
I have deleted all the files and shortcuts and registry entries, so it won't happen, but I cannot figure out how to turn the modem sound back on. I have found the modem volume control, but it isn't that.
I am running Win98 SE, and if anyone can help me turn the modem sound back on so I can hear when my modem is dialing out, I would be seriously grateful!
