Dual boot. Win2K on C: and Win XP Pro on D:. Had to format C: because of infection of MS_BLAST/WORM_NACHI. Have an HSP Micromodem-56K/V.92. When online with a browser (any) open I am sending and receiving info. without me wanting to or not. I can have Opera open with a blank page and the transfer of info still takes place. This is all per the status popup box for the modem. Will show receiving @ 7.1kbs and the data could be as much as 10MB without me even knowing it. I know that my machine will send bits of info, but 2MB worth? Zone Alarm is up and running with no alerts or permissions requested while this is going on.
1) What is going On?
2) From where and to where are these tranfers taking place?
Check system every 24 hrs. with AVG and no evidence of any virus. Only other thing that is going on is that I keep getting the message that "svchost.exe has experienced problems and is shutting down". I really need help as I refuse to go online until this is taken care of. I will correspond from a remote. Thank you in advance.
