Since downloading the latest drivers for my speedtouch 330 modem(on advice of ISP), I have been unable to access any microssoft website (hotmail, updates, etc). I can get any other website. I have setup my Windows 2000 Prof again hoping that it would cure the problem. I have deleted cookies, temporary internet files. I have restored IE defaults. I have run AVG antivirus and AVG spyware and also Antivir guard. Antivir picked up 'Trojan horse TR/Drop Keenval.f.

Because I have setup a new installation of 2000 Prof and have been unable to get on any microsoft websites I am also unable to download the latest updates or versions of IE. I am running IE 6. (Cipher strength 56 bit - if that helps)

I have also had the DNS error message after failed attempts to access hotmail.

Any other ideas? I am a complete novice but any help would be appreciated.

Ok, I ran hijackthis and here is acopy of the logfile:
