well anyways i dled a file and i scanned it nothing came up so i did w/e and then later on my mcafee virus scan detected it as dnschanger.a and i read about it i was hoping it was gone... and i thought i did everything to get rid of it but apparently i didnt. Now its like 2 weeks later i cant go on the internet. on the bottom part where it says downloading from site like yahoo or whatever it says error c:/etc something dns at the end. and so i think its back what do i need to do to get rid of it fully? right now i am posting from a different computer. also how dangerous is this dnaschanger.a and can it do anymore damage?
thank you

well now i system restored my computer back to a date but i think the trojan messed up all my security programs cause zone alarms wont start up and norton antivirus wont scan because it says there are missing components. but now my internet is working so i redownloaded norton and zone alarms and have them working but when i scanned nothing was picked up. but the earlierst date it let me restore to which is weird is one that after i got the trojan. just incase my firewall is not working or w/e i pulled the ethernet cord out i think thats what it called. if anyone knows how to find the dnschanger.a and fully get rid of it please help me :whistling:
