This is the first time i post here, but i have to say this is a good site which taught me a few things even though my knowledge in computers is very primitive.
You're probably fedup with this title already but i just cant fix the problem. I'm using windows xp SP 2, and i cant browse properly. sometimes i cant connect through programs like msn messenger unless i try a many number of times. Sometimes the browsing is perfect for a few minutes, but then i get the message of DNS error again, and i have to keep reloading the page before it shows up if it ever does. and another thing is that not all the graphics of a webpage show up, for example the one i'm on right now while i'm typing this message, the smilies are all replaced with red x's. i also know that i'll have a hard time sending it cuz i'll get the "cannot fine server + dns error" once i click on send, and i'll hae to go back try again go back try again.
The problem started 3 weeks ago right after installing a cable modem. i formatted my computer and i didnt install many programs.
The connection is fine according to my internet provider, since at first i thought it might have been a problem with the new cable connection.
I've tried using adaware, Spybot S& D and CW Shredder, however i couldnt update the shredder geting the message ""Unable to retrieve CWShredder update information. the server might be unavailable" which might be because of my computer problem. ( its a version 1.59.1 )
I tried running HJT and i saw a few entries with the word kimochi.exe, so i just deleted them, cuz i think kimochi is a spyware. now i know that was wrong to mess with the HJT for a person who doesnt know much.
so what should i do? should i post a HJT log in the security section? or what ?
thanks a lot, and sorry for the long message
