I am here from the malware forum. We got rid of some malware and cleaned up my computer, but was referred here because I'm having connection/network issues.
I use Windows XP, have a dial-up connection, and use AOL.
I cannot access the internet w/o disabling Norton and still it freezes up often.
I've noticed under Networking in task manager that three things show up under Adapater Name
(Local area connection, wireless network, and The Internet (1).) These did not show up before my malware issues. I also have a WAN miniport which I did not have before.
When I am on AOL, it shows up as an application on my taskmanager, but so does "connecting to Internet 1"...which is odd.
I am unable to shut down svchost.exe Local Service which I never had a problem shutting down before. Often times can't shut down CCAPP and CCEVTMGR.EXE and some others.
There is also a 1394 adapater/network which I cannot disable.
Any help is greatly appreciated and I will make a donation for assistance.
