    Try disabling and re enabling it?

    Restart your modem/router?

    Have you tried repairing your connection?

    Do you have a built in ethernet network card in the motherboard? If so perhaps it is malfunctioning. Have you tried putting in a PCI ethernet adapter?


    Run this and upload the log.

    Your system is infected with malware.

    I have therefore moved this thread to our Security and the Web forum.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :)
