Hello, if this thread isn't in the right category, please move it for me. Anyways, heres the facts.
1.I've got a Fujitsu M2010 with an Atheros AR5007EG network adapter.
2. I've just gotten over a W32.Ramnit virus. However, a Backdoor.tidserv virus under the file name "netbt.sys" is still attempting to copy itself in the file path C:\windows\system32\drivers\
3. When I try to connect to a Netgear wireless-N router, I get the "Invalid IP address" after attempting to connect with and without a wire (via Atheros network adapter) in the LAN connection status window and wireless network connection status window under the support tab. (address type: invalid ip address, ip address: 0.0.0.0, subnet mask: 0.0.0.0, default gateway: 'blank')
4. When I used my friend's verizon wireless hotspot, I was able to connect, but addresses I try to enter on Google Chrome will not load until 3-5 minutes later.
Does this sound fishy or is it really bad?
PS: I was only able to load sites related to Yahoo.com all other sites never did respond.
I already scanned with Symantec and Malwarebytes. NOTHING was detected. Also, the Backdoor.tidserv classified virus is still attempting to copy itself under the filename netbt.sys
That's why I recommended you install and scan with another anti-virus software. Don't keep it installed, but run a scan with Windows Defender, Avira, those may be able to clear out the virus. You may need to run the scans in Safe Mode.
