after scanning computer mobile tethering won't work
« on: July 06, 2015, 10:41:20 PM »
hello. i have recently figured a way to make mobile tethering work on my windows xp and have been using it for a while. having access to the internet, i wanted to secure my pc from viruses. i installed AVAST and when i did it offered me a scan. i thought it can't harm to scan my computer right? i went for it and after my computer has started up, as usual, i switched my mobile tethering on. i noticed my skype wasn't connecting and figured it might just be a lag but when i opened the browser i had what to see. my tethering wasn't working anymore, tho it said my PC was connected to the internet. i tried reinstalling my tethering software various times but nothing worked.
does anyone have an idea what went wrong and how i might be able to fix this issue?
thank you in advance!

Did avast detect and remove anything during the scan?
If so, what was detected/removed ..... check avast chest (quarantine)
