;) :tazz:
i've had a good computer for about a year, and am a safe user (few virus problems, etc.). i moved to a new house a few months ago that uses a Belkin wireless connection. though there has always been a weak signal (i'm far away from hub), my connection to the internet has always been fine. All of a sudden, about a week ago, i got the aurora virus among many others and my internet connection started acting very bizarre. in order to get online, i have to 'repair' the wireless connection and it will work (very very slowly) for between 30 and 90 seconds. then no internet connection exists (unless a download is going on, that will work until completed) until i 'repair' the connection again. this has made it very hard for me to download the necessary things to fix Aurora, etc., so i find that this problem should be the first i should fix. My primary browser is Avant, but the same problem occurs with IE. please help! i'm an amateur user relative to most people on this site, but i'm not computer illiterate (i built the one i use). thank you!

I think you should reboot in Safemode and run Anti-Virus scan, Adware and Spyware if you have. After it's finished, reboot your system to see if the problem is fix. If not, you can try system restore. Please post back the result.

:tazz: funny thing is, before Ong2lua's reply, i posted my own reply explaining how i fixed the problem. more so: how it got fixed. but i did that on another computer that seems to have problems of its own, because that comment never got posted. that's a good suggestion you've made, but in my numerous downloads of software that i would proceed to use to fix Aurora i downloaded CWShredder, and it popped up to say "you have a network connection problem, would you like to fix it?" i chose "yes" (who wouldn't?) and it proceeded to restart my computer and everything has ran perfectly since. Much smoother, much faster, no "repairing" of my connection or anything. So thanks for the help everyone who spent even a moment thinking about how to fix this. but now i highly recommend CWShredder if you have this or similar problems! ;)
