I have a serious virus that has compromised my eee pc 900. I found this virus before and posted the thread. I was unclear with my questions and everyone that helped me in the forum were very kind. Again today my internet was being used by another party, it is encrypted and I am the only person that has the password. I have snap shots of the details of when I sign on to my wireless that show unknown wifi attached. I checked the DOM Inspector and have 8 screen shots of all the files that were cloned, redirected and had been attached to. I tried several different AV's with no success. Does anyone have any suggestions? I would greatly appreciate any input you may have.

Ordinarily, I would just assume that the PC's OS is Windows, since almost all computer viruses ever written are really Windows viruses. But you're posting this on on LinuxExchange, so I have to ask--which OS is under attacked?

Put Hijackthis and Autoruns on a memory stick. Boot up in safe mode and use these two tools to remove anything nasty in startup.

Also install Microsoft Security Essentials as your antivirus software. Also use Malwarebytes free to scan for any Malware.

If you have a rootkit virus you may see an additional partition when you open Disk Manager. You could potentially remove a rootkit partition without killing the machine but approach with EXTREME caution!
