Hello Doom,

Win32.NetSky is a computer virus found mainly in email attachments. The virus is activated when the user downloads and runs the attachment.

Unfortunately, you do not access to internet through your infected computer, but I assume you can access Internet via another computer.

Could you please download the following applications and save them onto a memory device, ie USB key, Flash drive, CDRom.

Once downloaded and save, please let me know and I will give you further instructions to remove this virus.

Here are the two applications:

Hyjackthis

Combofix

Looking forward to hear from you.
