Hi all,

I heard this site was good so hopefully you can help me with this problem.

Recently, every time I boot into windows my AVG (full version) flashes a "Fire wall changed to allow all, gaming mode disabled" message, which I see basically means the firewall is disabled, I change it back to "standalone computer, gaming mode enabled" but on the next boot up, it changes back to "allow all".

This has happened since I downloaded a free trail of some software and got a virus as soon as I ran it, the virus was moved to the vault (which I stupidly emptied without making a note of what the virus was) and I have scanned all drives since and they are apparently clean. Could the virus still be lurking somewhere and be disabling my firewall on boot up?

Any answers/advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
