Possible virus

Have you tried a basic scan?

Yea thats what Im using now, she never really gets on the net that much. Mainly using the computer for picture scrapbooking and shes a teacher, so Microsoft Works stuff. The computer is still pretty new. It HAS however obviously been in the internet, so a virus or w/e is a deffinate possibilaty. I just figured it may be something to do with a firewall or something blocking the programs?? I dont know though.....

scan it with your anti-virus. Also keep in mind we cannot help you with the utorrent problems, only firefox.

that's most likely a virus or a bad download of the installer.

Parental control?

If you are running Vista, are the parental controls set?

For w/e reason the computer will NOT let me install Spybot S&D...Tried downloading from filehippo and filefactory..."Error sending request A connection with the server could not be established"


.................

Its XP

UPDATE : Installed AVG and after the installation my IE wouldnt even work. I didnt scan for viruses because it said the vault was "out dated" or w/e. So I clicked scan for update. Couldnt scan for update because the internet wasnt working. So something is deffinately F'd up.

So now what?
