HI good people,
I want to know if virus can spoil a NIC card. I just formated my system after a persistent virus attack that refused to go after scaning and deleting the infected files.
I instaled a new operating system and also installed a newwer antivirus software. I was suprised that after browsing for some hours, I noticed a slowness on my browsing speed. On checking the send and receive packets on the NIC, I saw that the sent packets was ten thousand times the receive making my uplink to be far greater than my downlink.
Could this be that virus has destroyed or spoilt my NIC card or could there be another cause for this ugly incident.
Please respond, am at my wits end!
