I have a pretty crazy problem and I have no idea how to resolve it.
I was reading financial articles online today, when suddenly the entire computer shutdown unexpectedly. Upon start-up, the screen showed a warning that recommended a system restore, so I went ahead and did it.
Once I re-started, I noticed that I couldn't access anything through the search engine, Google. Once I realized that every other site worked fine, I did some research and discovered that it was likely the result of a virus.
However, I tried searching for "TDSSserve.sys" which is normally associated with this problem, and found nothing.
To make matters worse - My Trend Micro is spazing out like crazy. In the last 7 hours, I've received over 80,000 "web threats" from some ( http://) x-web.in /(followed by several random alpha, numbers)...I had to turn off my router to stop these threats from racking up.
Thank goodness Trend Micro blocked every single attempt so far!!
Any idea what's attacking my computer? I can't access Google and this x-web.in thing keeps attempting to penetrate.
Note: I'm running Windows 7 on an HP G-62 model.
