Our PC (Windows XP Home) has been behaving oddly recently.
We have AVG Free, zonealarm, spybot and ad-aware as our protection.
The last few days, zonealrm appears to have "forgotten" everything we have allowed permission to and told it to remember. We are having to redo them all. It still keeps forgetting some we have ticked and allowed yet again.
Around the same time, tons of italics have started appearing...eg our homepage is google. The links above and below the search box are now in italics, as is anything we type in the search box. In zonealarm, the allow and deny boxes are in italics and I dont think they used to be. In ad-aware some of the instructions/links are now in italics.
I have run all my anti virus and spyware and got rid of a couple of things spybot picked up that had changed registry values, but the problems persist.
Again since this has been happening, my somn has found World of Warcraft online game unplayable due to high latency and time lag.
Well for no apparent reason the italics problem has suddenly gone, but I am still getting an awful lot of alerts from zonealarm, re changed programmes etc trying to access the inetrnet when I know they haven't been changed deliberately....and programmes I have ticked to remember and allow are still popping us.
Is it possible this is some deep worm or trojan that my security hasn't detected?
My son is still having a lot of strange problems with his online game.
