Hello all good folks at Dani Web !!!!!!
I have an Emachine, W3050, Windows XP Home edition.
It had MANY viruses,maleware etc... I got it clean to where SpyBot and Super Antispyware gives me a clean report ! Yeah !
I ran quite a few "cleaners" , including ComboFix. Now, I CAN NOT get this computer to bring up a web page ! If ya try to bring up any page , it says..... "The page cannot be displayed".
I have reinstalled SP2, put in a Ethernet card, went through all the steps in the " NEW CONNECTION WIZZARD, went into LAN settings and made sure that it AUTOMATICALY DETECTS SETTINGS. Rebooted, checked my "packets, sent 74, rec.3697 Tried to get on Google, THE PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED". Hit REPAIR, it couldn't repair, dern it. Rebooted. When I rebooted, I noticed that both little monitors in the task bar blinked, so I checked the packets again, Sent 77, rec. 2435. Then I checked my restricted sites to see if Google happened to be on the restricted sites list. There were NO sites listed on the restricted sites list. I went ahead and added Google to the TRUSTED sites list. Packets, sent 94, rec. 2435. Rebooted. Two little monitors in taskbar blinked, I checked the packets again, sent 57, rec. 2635, tried Google, same results. I turned off Zonealarm, tried Google, same results. Rebooted to "SAFEMODE", with Networking, tried Google & Dell . com, same results. Shut computer off, gritted my teeth and here I am.
I tried to get the original ethernet connection to work and got the same results, so I installed the ethernet card.
I think one of the Antivirus cleaners such as Combofix, has done something that I can't seem to fix.
Anyone out there care to help me get this computer to hook up to the net ?
