when i went to run this hijackthis check it said i could not enter some host files

Off the top of my head, it sounds as though you are being blocked from accessing some sites by Hosts File entries.

Navigate to C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\etc\hosts and open the Hosts file with notepad and copy and paste it for us and we'll see if that is the problem.

I do not believe that this is a malware issue. Perhaps some security settings have been changed? Have you tried a System Restore to a time when your compy was behaving properly?

You could fix the following in HJT, but they are just minor cleanup:

I am not sure why you are having trouble with command prompt. Have you tried navigating to cmd.exe and running it? What about command.com?

-- For your connectivity issue, you might try investigating with the following tools:
http://visualroute.visualware.com/
http://network-tools.com/

-- Have you installed the latest build for ZoneAlarm. I think they had a recent update.

-- Do you have connection problems using IE?

There could be any number of causes for the connectivity problems.
The command prompt issue may be a lingering result from a previously cleaned malware infection.

cmd.exe did work for me, I have had better luck with my connection since i got rid of firefox last night, everything seems to be working fine and a bit faster than it was you had told me the other day to check the host file and it was full of entries had a friend at work show me the steps to clean it up. so all seems to be working well
thank you for the help, one thing i did notice was that IE doesnt let me onto daniweb when i log in it keeps redirecting me back to the login /register page kind of odd , im using opera to type this
thanks again

Happy to help!
So there were entries in the Hosts file after all - I figured that would be a good place to start.
Dumping Firefox may have been a bit of overkill...

As for the problems with IE/Daniweb, it sounds like a cookie issue. You should check your cookie settings as well as security settings for IE.

Cheers :)
