I've used Jie's laptop to download Adaware, CWShredder, and Spybot, and as soon as VirusScan finishes I will run them on my laptop. If that doesn't fix it, the IT guy at my old office said he can move some things around to help me out on Monday. Dean's a good guy.
Here are a few takeaways from this:
- Enable the Internet Connection Firewall for all your internet connections
- Enable Windows Update to download and prompt for installation for all security patches (and when you get a new PC, don't get online until you can get all the necessary updates)
- IT seems like a very frustrating job. You fix problems like this all the time and if you are any good then people like me call you when it isn't even your job to help them anymore...
