OK some weird things happened while on MSN messenger today I posted them on the IE forum but here it is:
"start the application sharing feature so I could see her desktop. The app share thing took forever to start working and we were never able to connect. THEN all of a sudden a bunch of IE boxes with "This page cannot be displayed" kept poppin up and I mean they kept poppin up all over the screen and I couldn't stop them. Yikes. So I disconnected and tried to reconnect my internet but I couldn't. It told me my connection was working but I kept getting a "This page cannot be displayed" and if I started Messenger it told me that I couldn't connect because of a firewall. I only use the Win xp firewall at the moment. Anyways 10 minutes later my service seems to be working fine but all those windows popping up has left me a little worried. If my computer is up to date then can I get viruses by connecting to an infected computer over MSMessenger? I did a virus scan and it didn't find anything, except for a 158MB file from a game which I'm assuming is an error. Any help would be appreciated. 2 other things: When this happened I noticed a process called rsvp.exe running that I've never seen before. Also there is a process called dvpapi.exe running and I don't know where I got that virus scanner from."
Anyways, after running every scan I could find, I shut my computer off and 2 minutes later it BOOTS BACK UP!!! It's never done that before. I went to the system/device manager and made sure my modem wasn't set to wake up on anything (all I could think of doing) but it didn't work and sure enough my computer still boots back up by itself. !?!?!? I keep the net connection disabled when I'm not using it. Please someone help.
