I have recently dicovered this website and would like to give a heartfelt thank you to all the decent, kind and helpful computer savy people that use this site. I have learned quite a bit but am stuck...so here's my first post.....please be kind to my ignorance and misuse of any terms.

I have followed the steps outlined under the "How to / Tutorial" section regarding network setup, posted by SpaceCowboy706. My desktop is working fine and the laptop is also working when I plug it directly into the router, however I cannot access the internet via a wireless connection. Under "Network Connections" my Wireless connection reads....."Disabled, Firewalled, SMC2632W V.2 Wireless PC C." Another thing that I think I should mention is...when I right click on the wireless connection and then click the properties section, the general tab appears and no matter what I do I cannot "unselect" the Service Advertsing Protocol." The reason that I mention this is that in the instructions by Spacecowboy706, I was supposed to only select "Client for Microsoft Networks, QoS Packet Scheduler and Internet Protocol (TCP/IP).

I also have a problem with the "Best Offer" popup....Am I doomed? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi deewall23!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. (Obviously since you can't connect to the Internet on the problem computer, you will have to download the files on a computer that has an Internet connection and then transfer the files over to the problem computer using some sort of portable media like a flash drive or burn a cd with the files on it.) If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
