I'm in a mere state of desperation right now. Three to four days back, I got cable internet because of it's better speed than dial up. However, in my locality, I've heard they use some kind of a LAN system due to which other users in my sector can easily access other users computers. Not being a big techie, I've no skills of stopping such hacking and loads of users on the LAN are constantly sending viruses to other computers, including mine.
The day I put cable internet, the next I had it given for repairment because of some Dr Watson virus. This folder, Dr Watson, was constantly increasing in size until it had reached 5 GB! And my computer was giving me threats of deleteing programs, etc. Now I don't know if Dr Watson is a virus or some computer file, but it sure heck is evil. Because yesterday again it has come again and it's constantly increasing in size.
I have sygate installed and running everytime I'm on cable internet and also the windows firewall. I've tried all ways of not allowing access to other users to my computer but nothing is helping. Can you please help me remove whatever this virus is or why this Dr Watson folder is constantly increasing in size? And How can I keep my computer safe within a LAN? Or should I just switch back to dial up? PLEASE HELP ASAP!!
