    I couldn't get on the internet for about 4 days. At first I thought it was a virus. I was scanning with Avast and it couldn't find anything.

    I think there must have been a problem with the server. It sure is a good idea to not jump to conclusions and think about what is going on with your computer. I could update my virus data base everyday. If there was a virus in the computer, I think that the virus wouldn't let be update.

    I didn't call the server because they have, what can I say, packy's answering the phone. I just don't like talking to those people unless I have to.:p

    It is a good thing that I didn't go anywhere and sent money to fix a computer, that didn't need fixing. :eek:

    And what I had looked just like a virus. When I tried to open a web page, after a few seconds it would dissappear.

    Just a warning to you green horns, when it comes to computers. Don't jump to conclusions and start to spend money for nothing. You are going to bring the computer in to a place and tell them there is a virus in it. They are going to check it out and will not find anything. And guess what you are still out what ever the money was they charged for checking it out.

    And they may even tell you they found something even if they didn't because they want your business again. ;) :p

    Just one more thing, I was talking with someone on a computer chat line. This person also said it is a virus.

    No I didn't, but maybe it would be a good idea if I did.
