I have a Windows 2000 professional PC here that cannot access the internet. It is a friends PC that about 2 months ago he called me and said he couldn't access the net with IE6. I got him to install Mozilla firefox and he was back in action up until a month ago when he couldnt get on with Firefox either. I took the PC from him (now I wish I hadn't) and found his antivirus was way out of date. Installed avast and ad-aware and found a couple of virus' and loads of adware. Its all clean now but I still cant get it back on the internet.
I've uninstalled and reinstalled the DSL modem but no luck. When I install the modem it gived me an auto config IP address and when I manually configure the tc/pip settings I can ping ip addresses on the internet but I still cant get on the net. Even using a website IP address in IE does not work.
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
