wow sorry to reopen a really old thread. but i have to. its in my nature.

seeing how ive lost ownership to my computer (long story) ive havent had any problems with it. because it got reformatted. but now i have a major problem on my hands. symptoms similar to the virus incident were happening more frequently but only when i installed new hardware while running my d link network adapter. i had to uninstall everything and reinstall it in a certain order, that i cannot remember off hand. take out the network adapter and everything works fine and dandy. ive talked to one of the local computer shops, finally, and he said that it might be a bad mother board seeing how the monitor port is messed up. any suggestions. thanks

and sorry for not being on ive had school and again i no longer have a computer, at least for right now.
