ok ill try and explain this as best i can to avoid reiteration.
Before i go any further i THINK my problem may be a virus as the evidence suggests so.
I use tiscali broadband here in the Uk with a PPP Modem which you dial up and it connects to broadband, but recently iv been getting disconnected for no reason and another dial up screen comes up but its not my usual user name or password instead the passoword is INTERNETACESS and its a strange number i have never seen before and in my settings where i can choose my modem etc in the "connect to" part theres now another modem there and its highlighted, so obviously something is changing my settings to this other phantom modem and it isnt me.
Also recently loads of other problems such as Internet explorer randomly opening pages until i tell it not to, EXPLORER.EXE errors on start up which make me unable to see any of my desktop, my windows update has been switched from automatic to off and randomly my start bar will just dissapear.
All of that led me to beleive it was a simple virus but iv scanned and scanned and used adaware and everything and nothing seems to fix it, also tried system restore to no avail.
Feels like the computers falling apart and i have no idea whats causing it.
Thanks in advance.
