Question worm???

Everyday I turn my computer on at 8:00 am and it's all fine. Between 2:30 and 3:00 a file tries to download itself called ron_country.php, but lately it's CAWPABC9.php.....Then the video goes, all explorer windows open black, text isn't right, nothing functions. Scans turn up nothing. I use a remote desktop with a different IP which all runs fine tho. Everything goes back to normal after a restart...but obviously there is a problem with this machine. Any suggestions please????

Have you tried a virus or adware/spyware scan?

Try running spybot s&d. Sounds to me like you might have either a virus or some bad spy/ad ware. Heres the link:


goto the download section and choose Spybot S&D. Run it and it will usually come up with a ton of stuff, mainly bad.

make sure you have a firewall running as well as antivirus.

Sounds like you got the Sddrop Virus and Hijack
