    I post this in Newsgroups: comp.virus and did not get any respond.

    Hi, this may not be the usergroup to post my problems. However, it involve
    Trojans and worms which infected my computer and may have contributed
    to my problems. Two months ago, I encounter difficulties setting Eudora
    mail client. Finally I had it up and running smoothly. All of a sudden, AOL
    and Comcast "Block" my email. A week or so AOL, lifted the blocking. I
    disregard it, but took precaution and "CC" email to my other Email.

    Two days ago I found all my email "Banned". I cannot login my paid Web
    mail. I can only receive email from my present ISP using "Personalities"
    to my other email. I run the latest Avest and found Trojans and Worms
    saved in Agents' newsreader in zip archived files long ago. Avest removed
    it. But, the damaged were done I am banned by everyone (I am not sure
    whether it is cause by the archived virus). I learned about the banned when
    I went to wildblueworld.com/forum. "Sorry. The administrator has banned
    your IP address. To contact the administrator click here"

    I called my ISP and they help me, changing Internet Protocol (TCP/IP),
    including flushing my IP address. Still no good. Spamhaus, AOL, Comcast
    and Yahoo banned my email. I never span, nor do I sell or solicits anytime.
    I guarded my email never, accept anything free and etc. I email to only a
    handful of people.

    While I download from comp.virus Newsgroup, Avest found a Trojans in
    Posting "Subject: wierd html" dated 11/16/2009. I need advice to
    lift the banned and protect myself from further infected.

    Thanks a million. I really need help and advices ASAP.

    comp.virus is not a live group. It was canceled.

    ------------------------

    "comp.virus will be removed

    The Last Call for Comments (LCC) on 20 Jun 2007 initiated a five-day
    period for final comments. Following the comment period, the Big-8
    Management board has decided by consensus to remove the newsgroup
    comp.virus."

    This group will be removed on 25 Jun 2007.

    -----------------------

    You want alt. comp.virus and/or alt. comp.anti-virus

    This news group, served through Microsoft, will be going away soon. :-(

    First thing to do is scan you PC will a few different anti malware scanners such as;
    MBAM, Sophos, and Trend Micro. This will make sure the PC is really clean of malware.

    Then change ISPs. This way you will get a new IP address. Otherwise you will have to
    change the MAC address of your ISP connection such that you will be provided a new IP
    address. For example putting a NAT Router or a FireWall Appliance bween your PC and your
    ISP can do this and improve your security.

    Next, cancel the email accounts you have used. Sorry but that is the best way to go.
    They may have been compramised. Then create news accounts. Make sure all accounts have
    strong passwords. That is at least 8~10 characters and use a mix of uppercase, lowercase
    numbers and speacial characters.
