Hi, I am having great difficulties w/internet explorer (v.6.00 SP1 (6.00.2800.1106)). There is an internet connection for I can usually get at least to Google.com (my homepage) but after that, I get the "Cannot find server" on any webpage I try to go directly to. If for some miracle reason I get to another webpage, then I usually get the "Cannot find server" message once I try to get further into that website, i.e. trying to log onto email.

I ran Ad-Aware and found "Windupdates," which was designated as Spyware/Malware. I had AD-Aware remove this, but it still keeps coming back. I couldn't figure out how to post my hijackthis log, so I compared an older log that was considered "clean" after my about:blank issue with a hijackthis log I ran yesterday. I don't know if you will be able to help me without having a complete log, but I hope so!

Also, I found something online that corrupted Winsocks could be the problem, but am unsure. I followed the instructions from Microsoft, but I have Windows ME (Win9x 4.90.3000) and I think the instructions were for XP.

The "new" registry keys that appeared in my latest Hijackthis log =

C:\PROGRAM FILE\WINDOWS ADSTATUS\WINSTAT.EXT
C:\PROGRAM FILES\WINDOWS ADSTATUS\WINSTATKEEP.EXE

R3 - Default URL SearchHook is missing
02 - BHO: (no name) - {00000010-6F7D-442C-93E3-4a4827C2E4C8} - (no file)

017 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\VxD\MSTCP: NameServer = 4.2.2.2 (I recognize the 4.2.2.2 as related to recently installed wireless network.)

Thank you!

Hi, ignore the last log, I reran hijack this and think I got rid of everything you wanted deleted. However, IE is still not working. Also, I can't get online to run the winsock fix you mentioned. I tried to save it to disk using another computer, but when I try to open the exe program on the problem computer, it says that the program is corrupted.

Thx,
Kristin
