Hi Pam,

No my problem has not been fixed.

  Hi Carl,
  Did you get your problem fixed?  Did the Opera file make it
to you ok?  I couldn' t send it from the other place tonight
like I wanted to, but I'll sure be glad to try again right now
if you still need it.  My connection seems to have stablized


    With this email message, no.
    I see another one with an attachment.
    Cross your fingers.


      I sent it..... got down to the last few seconds of the
send and my server timed out for some reason.  They are having
trouble this evening.  See if you got it and it was complete.
I suspect that you didn't get it.  I have to leave right now.
I'll try again from the faster connection I'll have access to
after while.
      Aggravates me when that happens.


        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


              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


                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.


                  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

                  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?


                    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.

                          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

                            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.
