    I have a serious problem, my computer is not connecting to the Internet. It has been working for years now, all of a sudden it does not want to connect to the Internet. I was thinking it was a virus, but I want to know if it might be otherwise. I was running Project64, a Nintendo64 emulator, when my computer just froze. I pressed ctrl+alt+del, and I know the screen came up, but I couldn't see it. I made a few mouse clicks, and the pointer did it's little busy thing, and the computer stayed frozen. So, I rebooted, and now everytime it says that there is a consistency problem with drive D. After about a 30 minute (exaggerating) wait time, it finally loads into XP, however the Internet is not working.

    All of the lights on the cable modem are blinking, and the PC Activity light as well. I reset the modem, unplugged it a few times, from the socket and the PC, to no avail. I only have Internet on my Ubuntu partition, which is what I am writing this in. I included a screen shot of my task manager, so that people could see if I somehow deleted something during my random mouse clicking that I described above.

    I have gone through about half you processes, to see which is the problem, my question is, do you use the CITIvan thing? That is for credit cards and such...

    AHA! The problem is center.exe. It is a trojan, or it could be part of an ASUS program... I am getting mixed reviews here...

    I use the credit card thing, and I know that center.exe belongs to ASUS. I do not know what the problem is, because the internet works on Ubuntu perfectly.

    I believe that it might be that SVCHOST, that is stealing all the ramz. Do you see the one that says it is stealing 40000kb? Try ending it... I know it might sound stupid but my viruses I have seen hide. Well.
