Wireless ?....

Have a PC in my room that's using my wireless router from my main PC. Well, I got damn virus on that PC. My question is, will I still be able to surf the net while other PC(main pc) is in process of being reformatted. I'm thinking I still can, but I want to be sure before I start formatting it.

thanks

yes, you can still surf. The main cpu, where the router is, has nothing to do with the wireless.

Recommend macrium reflect and make an image of the PC when its up and running. Next time a virus or whatever, few clicks and plop a cd in the tray and PC is as good as new.

Macrium Reflect is by far the easiest to use image program I'm aware of. I love it!

Think you need to format/reinstall your OS(XP), read this first.

Some virus that had a exe. of yur62 thru 74 if I remember. Kept giving me the big red X's in taskbar where the time shows, had pop ups that said something about virus protection not installed. It also put 2 icons on desktop, which of course one of them was porn(lol), other was some search feature. I rescanned using Norton and spysweeper, and I also used CCleaner to clear out temp stuff and also used the registry cleaner as well. Icons are gone, no more pop ups w/ big red X, but as soon as I open up a browser, I get pop ups of random search sites and I keep getting some rundll errors.
