Re: Actiontec router problem

"(don't ask me how ths worked)."

it worked because you removed the threats on the PC.

i am not shocked MSE didn't catch the threats, it isn't that great of a scanner, but better than not having anything at all.

Interesting. So W7 went into self defense mode and switched on the firewall to protect itself, or at least to stop spreading the virus thru the network...

or the virus triggered its own virus to run and when it was removed w7 firewall stayed on. not sure, viruses do weird things.
