I am posting on behalf of my father's computer, which is right next to mine.
Windows xp (sp2)
Celeron® CPU 2.40GHz
2.39 GHz, 1.18GB of RAM
Problem: I think it has some nasty viruses, or something! At first we were unable to connect to a few select websites, such as Microsoft update website and any other site... it was somewhat random (it would let me go onto some websites like google and other websites). It would not let me update MSE OR Malwarebytes to do any scans on the computer (error was that the internet connection was interrupted, yet I can still go onto some other websites). It is now running without an Anti-virus. I have tried to start the computer in safe mode, I could try it again if there's another way, but it gave me some weird screen that had nothing to do with safe mode. I'd have to try it again to remember what it was. I'm not even sure where to start because there are so many things wrong with it. I don't expect to have them all fixed, just to have my dad get back in the internet without all these silly viruses! The computer is now down to the point where you cannot access the internet. And I know that the internet works fine because I am connected to the same one.
