I have no clue if this is the right section to ask this question in, so forgive me if it's not. We have windows xp, on a cable modem, and i go into chatrooms quite often. the problem started when a friend of mine was using a ip tracker and a booter in the chatroom i frequent. he told me, my ip addy and name showed up (on his tracker) as booting people from the room. i have no booter, so i assumed someone figured my password out and was using my ip. i changed my password, and went to buy a new firewall/anti virus/anti spy program. I bought, defender pro 2009. after i hooked it up, it detected spyware, but no viruses. i went into the chatroom, thinking with windows firewall and an extra firewall running, i would be safe. well, the same guy, (know now doesn't believe i don't have a booter) told me, my ip is booting. then, my firewall detector pops up with, Intrusion.Win.MSSQL.worm.Helkern. i am completely computer dumb, so i looked it up. it says that modem users, don't usually get thoughs. then today, OUT of chat, jusy on the internet, i get 3/1/2009 3:15:30 PM Intrusion.Win.MSSQL.worm.Helkern UDP 1434
3/1/2009 4:16:38 PM Intrusion.Win.MSSQL.worm.Helkern UDP 1434
TWO MORE!!! my firewall says it's blocked them coming in, but i'm wondering, is this from a program i downloaded or is an actual person trying to get into my pc, and if so, how much of that worm can sneak behind my firewall? i appreciate any help anyone can offer. thank you!

Hello bigmomma6702...

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions you'll find there.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum for the experts to analyze. Do Not reply to or "bump" your own topic...if it shows a reply, it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
