    Heya,

    The download section of AntiOnline hasn't been updated in years. Some of the software in the Download Section could be considered "malicious", although there's nothing much malicious about it anymore (since it's all outdated). I'm very interested though in hearing what the exact software is you downloaded, and how you found out that it's actually the software you downloaded from AO that is causing your problems.

    I'm moving this from Roll Call - Roll Call posts can not be replied to.

    I am thinking coincidence here, the file you said you downloaded here: http://www.antionline.com/showthread...hreadid=257398 was the Antivirus product. AVG (avg.exe). Now Tedob1 downloaded the file right after you and scanned it. It was found to be virus free.

    The fact that your system keeps restarting is a symptom of the Sasser worm making the rounds. You can find information on it HERE.

    Have you applied the latest Microsoft patches? Are you running a firewall? If the answer is no to these questions, my guess is your infected with Sasser. Read the information in the link, it will tell you what to look for and how to clean up the mess.

    It should be obvious by now that your problems aren't related to AO... *Thread Closed*
