What gives? Where is it all coming from? What am I doing wrong during the install process? I don’t really haveany choice but to go online for av and windows updates. all drivers were downloded on another computer and scan clean?[/QUOTE]
If your network isn’t clean, any computer connected to it will get infected.
My suggestion is to start with a single computer on a single internet connection (computer network interface card directly into router of modem which in its turn connects you to the internet).
Now physically disconnect the computer from your modem by removing the utp cable and install windows xp from an original disc. Set the firewall on and activate automatic updates as well.
Now reboot one last time. At this moment there has been no possible method for viruses to connect and infect your computer.
Connect your computer to the modem and immediately open windows update on internet explorer. Update everything and anything. Reboot lots of times and get all updates. Do not go to any other website.
After that’s done, install your virusscanner and update it.
Now disconnect the cable and scan your system with your virusscanner.
