Sounds like like some kind of virus. What usually happens is that the virus is downloaded by clicking on a popup, or on a link in a unsafe website. Then the virus gets past your firewall/antivirus. Then it immediately disables your anti-virus. Then it takes control of your computer and uses it for its own ends, usually hosting illegal files, or as a proxy for illegal IP boucing activities, or possibly just as a bot for processor ability and sending out spam mail. Or, it allows others into your computer to look for files, pictures, bank account info, etc...

Generally the best thing to do is get off the internet. Disconnect your cable and power off your computer, then take it in to an expert who can boot it up with the proper tools and clean it up.

There are some governments that can block specific internet sites, and possibly could shut down specific IP addresses, but unless you live in a Red communist country, or a completely corrupt one, this is unlikely.

Ive gotten a nasty virus from one of those tv websites.I had to do a system restore to a point before it happend.

If the computer is totally messed up,try to do it in safe mode

Once it was working again,I did a full scan,and got all the bugs out .

It's still quirky since this incident,and I lost any saved material.

I never downloaded shows,but that might be what it does.

I lost all saved music,photos,and written documents.

That sucks! I got hit by a nasty virus a couple years ago when my wife accidentally hit X on a suspicious popup. It was disabling everything faster then I could install it. I ended up saving all my photos to CDs then reformating. I later learned there was an easier way to get the anti-virus software to work, but I'd already lost a large amount of stuff to the reformat.

There are several good forums out there where the owners specialize in helping folks clean their systems. I've had very good luck with them over the years when my wife or I have picked up a virus here and there.

Try starting the computer in safe mode and running a full virus scan from there.
