Problem with internet connection after signing up for AOL, netscape and people PC
Posted on 2006-05-28
My daughter has tried netscape, aol and now people PC.
She was having problems with her internet conneciton so I ran adaware and spybot to remove spywear (there was quite a bit, including alexa) After running these, the internet conneciton seems to be broken. I can connect intermittently, but I seem unable to maintain an internet connection even though I am connected to the ISP.
I also noticed a rather strange symtom (I assume) of some spywear program. Even though she is not uploading anything, I noticed that there is constant network traffic via the dial up line and there is almost as much as 3 times as many bytes uyploaded as downloaded. This leads me to believe that there is a background program spying on her PC
I also ran an older version of string.exe
