I'm very new to this, layman's terms would be very much appreciated.
On Monday, SuperAntiSpyware removed 2 Trojans but I now do not have any network adapters (so I can't connect to the internet)my programs do not appear in the Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs but they are there when I use Windows Explorer.
I have tried to boot from my DVD drive (changed boot preferences in the BIOS) with Windows XP installation disc in the drive, I get "Press any key to boot CD" when I press any key nothing happens, windows boots "normally" with Invalid Boot.INI file, Booting from C: Windows. Windows starts I get a pop-up that says RUNDLL error loading onyc.ffo __This specified module could not be found.
Another thing that happened and I don't know how related it is. I also used Microsoft Security Essentials before SuperAntiSpyware and it detected the Trojans but it then asked me to activate Windows XP, which I did by calling a toll free number (the automated message gave me a 42 digit number to enter)which I did and that's when everything stopped working.
I downloaded the SuperAntiSpyware.exe onto a flash drive from another computer(because I didn't have internet anymore) and I was able to load it and run a scan and (hopefully) delete the Trojan because Microsoft didn't.
Does anyone know what happened to my network adapters - there seems to be no drivers? and programs? Why can't I boot from the DVD drive? Is the Trojan really gone? Do I have something more aggressive?
