found this to help you....

If you are running Windows XP , you'll need your disk, other wise you'll have ot down load from Microsoft.

http://www.ehow.com/how_5038640_block-ip-address-windows-xp.html

Caution use at your own risk I haven't tried this, but I'm behind a router as well so don't need it.

Something else you can look at isto shutoff some of the services that aren't used, I'd consult Microsoftt or one of the more well known AntiVrus / on line help sites. But becareful on what you turn off other wise you could end up with a computer that can't talk on the inet.

It may well be that they've tried to send you a trojan by email, and are now trying to gain access to it, which is promptly blocked by your firewall. Can't hurt to do a full virus scan with one or more virus scanners (I've always found Avira Antivir free version to be pretty reliable), just to make sure your computer hasn't caught a bug.

Linksys have a quite nice firewall built into their routers so something like a linksys wrt54g2 or a BEFSR41 would probably work well.

or Google them with Australia in the search.

The only completely safe way to clean this mess up is to reinstall the operating system, that advice comes from Microsoft's Security group whom I used to work with from time to time. Make a partition of say 50-60 gigs and install the operating system in there. That way next time your data files will be safe.

This is, of course, post-facto, but Linksys does indeed have some very nice firewall routers. Even if all you have is one computer, hiding it behind a good firmware filrewall works wonders. My router hides all eight of my computers, both wireless and wired) and in the 8 years I've owned it not ONE single IP probe has made it to my system. The router kills them dead. The router is set up so that "if I didn't ask for the packet, I don't see it". Anonymous probes are completely ignored. If one hits, it is NOT acknowledged in any way. That way, the sender simply assumes your IP address isn't in use.

Whether it is a wireless or wired router the investment is worth it.

Hi misterchugg,

Try Malwarebytes' Anti Malware, the basic version is free to use and does a good job of removing spyware and other junk Anti virus programs miss.
If a full scan dosn't remove your problem go to its menu;
More Tools
And select
FileASSASSIN
The above tool is designed to remove locked files on your system.
Hope this helps'

Hi

RECYCLER is a hidden folder on your drive. You need to switch on "Show hidden files and folders" in the advanced settings in the View tab in Folder Options found under the Tools tab in "My Computer".

Once that is switched on you can see the contents of the RECYCLER folder.

Unless I have the gist of this wrong, copy the name of the file to a textfile on the desktop, just in case you need the original name. Do this by browsing the contents of the recycle bin. Then try renaming the one in the bin to something with a smaller name by dragging it first to the desktop. Rename it, drag it back to the bin and next empty the contents of the bin.

Hi Ron,

Try going to the Properties panel of the Recycle Bin and changing the settings to 0% of the drive to use. After you click OK that should remove all the contents. You're not really deleting the file as much as you're telling the OS that it can use the reserved space for other things now. You can run Defrag and it will most likely over write the file if you really want to get rid of it for good. Change the settings back later if you want the protection of the recycle bin again.

Recycler is a nasty piece of virus, do a Google search for it to see how to remove it. There are certain programs that might fix this particular piece of $h*t but in general a reformat is the best.

This virus hides in your drive's and/or partition "System Volume Information" in one of the .ini files and it gets replicated by doing a hidden "System restore" or such. Best is for the time being to set your "System Restore" to none and delete all references of the RECYCLER folder in your drives and/or partitions by finding them in Windows Explorer. As well as ALL files in your "System Volume Information" to make this folder empty (0 bytes) or RECYCLER will replicate itself again.

I had this particular virus transferred to me via a USB memory stick I used on my brother's PC to get something I needed from it. It is still on one of my PC's but it can do no further harm (I think :confused:) as I done the above things to it and so far so good, fingers crossed. In the near future I will reformat.

I also have Sygate Firewall Pro 5.6 running on my PC, this firewall tells me when something wants to go out (online) from my PC and where it wants to go when online. I just click no when asked if I do not know where it wants to get to as surprisingly :eek: a lot of legitimate programs do such and phone home. Unfortunately Sygate was bought out some years ago by another firewall mob and does not exist anymore but one can still find and d/load the last published copy of it on the internet.

Sygate firewall makes a good companion with most other firewalls as there are not many others (none that I know of) which will tell me what is trying to go OUT of my PC and where it wants to go when online. I use this firewall together with ZoneAlarm for several years already and am happy with its performance, despite Sygate Pro being some years old already.
