Is The Virus Really Gone?

  1. I ran a spybot search and destroy on my computer to eliminate a virus. It moved some files and deleted one. My computer is no longer acting crazy, however, it won't connect to the internet any more. It says there is not an internet connection and I should choose to work offline or try again. My computer is hooked up to a network and it is the only computer on the network that is having trouble connecting. When I run the task manager it has several programs (30-40) listed and the list changes every couple of seconds. When I try to end one program it asks if I'm sure I want to continue because information from that file could be lost or damaged...What is going on with my computer!? Did the virus permanently damage my computer?

    you can download programs on another computer like your friend's pc or at cyber cafe, and then put the installs on a cd or thumbdrive and bring them to your computer ;)
