Have a client with an older IBM desk top running XP SR2. Customer called me after Windstream had abandoned project after client could not get to internet. I came out and found out that most of services had been disabled. Since I can't get to internet can't load any virus protection of spyware stuff. Clients virus protection had expired.
Windstream replaced hardware and I have checked it out with my laptop and it is oK.
Suspect at least malware and maybe virus.
I am a tech myself.
Anybody seen anything on this.
If this is the wrong forum, let me know.
Appreciate your help !
