  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 deal
ing 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
            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

              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


                        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.
