This computer is connected to the internet via a netgear wireless card.
Ok, I downloaded and ran AVG. It detected and deleted a trojan called msdirectx.sys.
After that, IE will no longer connect to the internet.
I tried running the rescue disks, but apparently one of them is corrupt.
I tried reinstalling an earlier version of IE--no luck.
Initially, I was able to go to Windows Explorer and get online that way, so I think the wireless connection is not the problem. However, I haven't been able to do it since.
I tried installing an AOL program and it won't work, I get a waol error message.
I have no clue where to go next. I cannot connect to the internet to download HijackThis or anything else.
