Hello all, i had extensive scans a while ago (about half a year), and now a new problem occured, that i had once before too. When explorer tried to connect, it rejected the password. When i checked, it used an old one, I had changed years ago. When i double checked all my settings and tried to save it by hitting 'apply' (path: control panel -> internet options -> apply ((which is light, meaning unactive, i can't apply new settings)) I realized that this is 'disabled'... I can eventually go online, if not through the explorer then through other programs (opera, firefox), but i fear that this is malware... any suggestions what to do?

Thanks :-)
