Much to my chagrin, a well-meaning friend opened one of the stupid, infected eCard attachments, and opened a virtual can of worms on my business laptop. I have run AdAware, a trojan hunter, and AVG, and purged out everything they found (had then already installed on the machine in question). Unfortunately, this problem has left me with no TCP/IP functionality, and I cannot connect to the internet to download any additional software tools, including HJT.
What is the recommended procedure from this point? I am desperate and urgent. Thus far, the people or firms I have contacted for computer repair either know less than I do about this particular problem, or they simply want to charge me to throw in my original system disks. I have no choice but to attack this thing myself, so I am delighted to find this wonderful forum.
Any advice will be SO much appreciated...
