Hi David,

I am connected by cable to the Internet and I can send and receive ok via 
Outlook Express.    It's just that Internet Explorer will not open.   I 
downloaded F-prot dos and emailed it to the sick computer and it is now 
scanning the computer for bugs.

Thanks,
Carl

  If you can access the internet try one of these sites:
  online virus scanners; they will scan all the files on your hard drive for a 
virus.

  http://housecall.antivirus.com/pc_housecall/

  Norton Web Services  
  Go to this page and click on Scan for Viruses
  
http://security2.norton.com/ssc/vc_about.asp?langid=us&venid=sym&plfid=22&pkj=RKNYPJUIYCZRWEJGSSK

  It needs to download a few file so as to activate the scan so you may see a 
message like this.

  "The Scan for Viruses uses an ActiveX program to scan your computer. The 
download is approximately 1.5MB and can take about 10 minutes over a 28.8 modem.

  The scan can take more than 20 minutes depending on the speed of your 
computer and the number of files that you have. Please do not browse away from 
this page unless you intend to abort the scan. 

  Downloading Scan for Viruses controls. Please wait... 
   
  During the download, you might see one or more messages asking if it is OK to 
download and run these programs. Click Yes when these messages appear.

  Note: Scan for Viruses does not scan compressed files"

    Have you tried re-booting into safe mode??
    Have you tried your emergency startup disk?
    It's been awhile but I believe Norton's had something called Ndd ( Norton's 
disk Doctor). It allowed for you to fix a drive sector by sector, and I think 
it also has a virus program with it...
    Isn't your avg catching any of the virus's? If it's upto date it should be.

    Hi Martha,
    Hi Guys,

    Well I have a real problem.  My Windows xp, home edition will not restore 
itself.   I went back and attempted restore on 4 different dates and none would 
work.   I could only go back to January 25.    I looked again at the error 
report for the "tech details" and it shows 62 files were affected.

    I have some important tax records I cannot afford to lose.   Of course I 
will send copies to the other computer on this network (it is working ok), but 
I really would like to avoid a format.

    It looks like I need a virus program to run from dos.   

    Any suggestions?

    Carl

      Go to Start/Help and Support/Undo Changes to your computer with System 
Restore.

          If you are using Windows XP, try doing a System Restore on a date you 
know IE was working ok.

            Hey, when I installed Windows xp, did it make a backup copy of the 
setup files on my harddrive?

            I would go look but Explorer will not open.

              Hi All,

              I found my computer with a headache this morning.   I tried to 
open Internet Explorer and it will not.   The error message is that 
iexplore.exe is corrupt.   I tried to open Windows Explorer and get the same 
error message.   My other programs seem to be working ok, for now.

              I tried run > sfc /scannow and the system asked me for my Windows 
XP cdrom and I cannot find it.   I still have my receipt but no cdrom.

              So, I copied iexplore.exe off a computer at work and then I tried 
using dos to copy to c:\program files\Internet explorer and I keep getting the 
error message shown below:
               
              Of course, I don't know if that would even work, copying a good 
iexplore.exe over the bad one.   I do have a good iexplore.exe on c:\ drive;   
what if I deleted the other one, would Windows pick up on the good one.
