RE: My sons computer: Big mess!
I recently set up a Belkin wireless adapter and he was online fine. It was slow and glicthy, but he could surf and do Yahoo Messenger so that was good for now.
BUT, I realized he could not access my printer for homework so I contacted Belkin (no help). I decided I could figure it out, how to network our 2 PCs that is... HAHAAAA! Funny me!
This is were something horrible went wrong. The Belkin seems to be working, but every time IE loads I get concurrent messages: The horrible, "cannot find server" followed by "IE has encountered an error and needs to shut down." These keep flicking up no matter how many times I close them out.
Now, let me back up, as I turned on the PC yesterday, these are the many errors I received throughout the day (I did do Adaware, and Spybot and found much carp** and fixed that). I just want to give you a picture.
(He also cannot get his EZ firewall to start. There is an X through the icon. )
Iexplore - illegal op
Explorer error - invalid page vault WS2-32DLL
Today, I still get Vsmon, Rundll 32, Explorer error and cannot get online at all.
I do not know if the prior owner had Zone Labs, but I can find no trace of it!!! I also got rid of Norton weeks ago.
I uninstalled and reinstalled Belkin.
I uninstalled Yahoo Messenger for now, but left toolbar, home page etc.
What is this all? Is it something I did in attempting to network us, or did the viruses do all this damage?
Will he ever get on line? I just want to get a Hijack This report in and I can't with him down!
Thanks in advance!
