OK, I know this is not a win8 forum, but please read on...
My laptop has been acting weird and is frequently accessing the Internet when I launch programs. These are programs I have written and compiled myself and they have no functions or needs to access the Internet.
The firewall has asked permission to access the Internet and I have blocked them.
I am thinking of going to a full win8 factory restore and then transfer over my source code and recompile. But, my concern is that I may be transferring the virus/Trojan etc over during the copy-process.
I am thinking of using an older laptop booted with a Linux-live CD and then transfer the stuff across so hopefully the problem stuff will not get copied across.
Any thoughts, suggestions or ideas?
