Hey all, I've just gotten ADSL, a brand new 4MB line. I've connected the modem through a wireless router upstairs, and everything is working fine, almost. I have a sygate firewall, and when I'm using certain applications online, something called NDIS User Mode I/O driver is constantly nagging about letting through, if I do, this thing uses almost the whole line!! And every time I let it through, I end up with a trojan :tazz:

What am I to do?? Should I just keep it blocked from the internet? If I do that, every application I run, runs choppy for some reason. Because it then tries constantly to communicate with something out there. I'm truly confused here, I wanna know what that thing is, and what it does, and prefarably how I turn it off, forever, that is, if I don't need it.

Thank you in advance ;)

What kind of Trojans are getting past your router and firewall?

Thanks for the informative link to microsoft, made me a little wiser about this NDIS thing :tazz:

But about the trojans, I don't remember I'm afraid, I just press delete when the question comes about deleting, it says trojan, I delete ;)

Try doing a system scan in safe mode and deleting the trojan there. Also, I'd check to see what services/process are running when you boot up, you can do this by clicking 'start', 'run' and then typing msconfig. A screen shot of the full services tab would be helpful.
