  Ok to disconnecting from the Network and I will but after
Pam sends Opera 6 so I
  can send it on upstairs.   I have to use email to transfer
files back and for;
  the 2 computers will not see each other's folders nor
printers.    :-(   Am I
  dumb or what!

  I came home early to work on the issue.
  I have a very large box full of cd's and I intend to find my
Windows XP cd.

  I don't think my problem is a virus.   I ran AVG again and
identified the
  infected file and removed it.   Afterwards I  used F-Prot
,dos, (the most
  current edition)  and it did not identify any virus.
Although I will go
  online and use the other 3 sites to check the unit for bugs.
Yes Pam, please
  send Opera 6 to ctm007@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx   Thanks.

    Carl: One of the first things to do also is disconnect
this machine from the
  network until you know what you are dealing with.

      Duh!  I suppose it would be hard to go to a download
site without a browser
  to take you.  I can send you the file if you would like.
      Opera 6.0 is 10.8 mb
      Mozilla is 10.6 mb
      and NN 4.78 (sorry, it's the only version of Netscape
I've got) is 22.41 mb.

      The Mozilla browser looks and feels just like Netscape.
The Opera browser
  is different but easy to use and easy to learn to like.  Let
me know and I'll
  shoot whichever over.


        Try downloading Opera or Netscape browser and see if
you can access the
  internet via one of them.  Then you can atleast access the
online AV sites that
  David & Martha mentioned.


          Hi Trapper,
          No, I've not tried safe mode.   I will when I get
          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.


            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

            Any suggestions?


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


              Martha's Web

                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.


                  Martha's Web

                    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


                      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.
