What is an IDP.Generic virus and how do I remove it?
IDP.Generic viruses are the most common type of malware infection, where the virus is disguised as one thing but turns out to be something completely different. These types of virus often make people’s computers run really slow and clean temporary files making it difficult for people to recover their own files from time to time, so removing it can restore functionality.
Every computer has an Internet Connection Sharing (or “ICS”) setting that defaults to On (requires no manual configuration). The default settings allow you to share your Internet connection with 10 devices at a maximum total bandwidth limit of 100kb/s when downloading data or 50kb/s when uploading data. A hacker could exploit this if someone left the ICS on without securing it.
