I am not sure if someone has already asked this question before. I would appreciate any advice you can give about this.
Basically, I have a WindowsXP system, dial-up internet connection. For the last week or two, everytime I have logged onto the Internet, many things happen. Firstly right after my homepage downloads, the page automatically (within 10 seconds or so) attempts to load the website (http://adultfinder.com/go/g667878). Also a lot of popups would keep coming. I thought that maybe I needed to download some spyware. But this would not solve it. I also downloaded a new anti-virus program as my old one was out-of-date. The virus scan kept finding the following viruses...goaway, mmxeyn007 and Newme. These viruses loaded to my C:// drive and to the temporary internet files. Eventually the internet pages take a long time in uploading. Maybe after 45 minutes or so, it gets slow to the point that everything I was working on hangs up (even the ctrl+alt+del doesnt work and i have to manually shut it off). This has slowed the system up significantly.
Something I did notice was that if I clicked the stop button at the instant I know the adultfinder page is uploading, sometimes the viruses would not enter. So is there anyway I can prevent this from occurring?
Thanks for your help.
