My ISP contacted me a couple days ago and told me that I had an IRC bot/virus (after googling, I found so many other Canadians with Rogers ISP with this issue, why do no other ISPs care ) and needed to get rid of it or they'd cut off my internet (and they refused to give me any more info). So, I scanned with many different programs (including avast, mbam and several others) and found nothing.
Now, I was about to watch a movie on tv from netflix (i.e. need to be connected to internet), and halfway through the loading before the movie played it stopped loading. I go check the internet on my other computer (not the main one with the BSoD) and it's not working (even though the little window in the taskbar (where time is displayed) shows it is). Then I go to my main computer and for some reason it's off. I turn it back on and get a message saying my computer had a problem, and gave me some info etc.
Here's the info:
Problem Event Name: Blue Screen
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.768.3
Locale ID: 4105
OS Version: 6_1_7600
Service Pack: 0_0
Files that will help describe the problem:
For some reason I decided to uninstall the security programs I installed earlier (I only had one antivirus and one firewall to begin with, and one antivirus and firewall at the end, the rest were things like Threatfire and MBAM so don't worry). First, I uninstalled Ad-Aware, and as soon as it finished all of the programs I had pinned to my taskbar disappeared (It seems to work fine now, I can repin them and such but for some reason they all just disappeared suddenly). Also, I checked Internet again and it's working fine.
So, can anyone tell me what this means, and what I should do now given all of this?
Thanks!! Please help!
