Hi David,

I downloaded the software and emailed it to the sick computer and set it up and 
it is now in the process of scanning the hard drive.   I will not know til I 
get home tonight what the results are and I will let this list know.   Thanks 
for your help.

Carl

    Hi Trapper,
    No, I've not tried safe mode.   I will when I get home.
    I don't have an emergency start up disk.   
    I don't have Norton's Disk Doctor.
    I do run AVG daily and I do an update inquiry daily.   Each day AVG catches 
a virus and it's always in a compressed file (zip) and I cannot identify the 
individual file.   I've not yet killed the entire zip file.   I will expand the 
files into a temp folder and run avg and then kill the individual file.

    My computer runs ok, except I cannot use Internet Explorer nor Windows 
Explorer (I understand they are related).   My software programs like Quicken, 
MsWorks, Word, Outlook Express, etc work ok.

    If I cannot find Windows XP disk, I'll have to go buy a new one.

    As we speak, I am running F-prot in dos mode.   I'm looking forward to the 
results.

    Carl

      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.

          How?
          Can I do it from Run?
          My Explorer is not working.

            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.

                Carl
