Just formatted the HD & reinstalled WinXP Pro. I then installed AVG, SpyBot & Ad-ware. I was able to download & install multiple security updates. But now I am unable to perform a Windows Update. I'm being asked to do a Genuine Windows Validation, I click on [continue] and then get the following: 'Page Cannot Be Displayed' error.

Here is my Hijackthis log:

I'm also experiencing problems getting to yahoo.com using IE6. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Are you absolutely sure that the load of XP that you installed is legal?
