Thanks, if you implemented all the recommendations made by Bio Hazard you will have already reset all your Internet Security configurations.
however it still might be worthwhile to:
1, close all applications,
2 then opening IE7, setting all security to default and then see if this helps: (Tools>Internet Options>Securitry reset all Zones to default and OK out.
3 Now close the browser, reboot and see how you go.
4 Next check that your firewall is correctly configured and is allowing access not only to your network if applicable but also IE and other legitimate applications that need access.
5 check that your security products are not blocking...pop up stoppers are often included with security products and toolbars etc.
6 Next you will need your Microsoft windows XP installation disc with SP2 included to be handy.
7 Start>Run>Type in the white box
(note the space its essential)
8 The sfc scanner will now run and check that all Windows Protected System files are in the right place with none missing or damaged. If the scanner finds problems with the protected files it will attempt to copy over good copies of the files from other parts of your machine, if it cannot locate good copies it will ask you to insert the Microsoft disc referred to above.
9 The scan will take approx 20 minutes or so to run, there is no "output report" file (as such) so keep an eye on it whilst it's running....the fixes will be applied automatically.
10 When it has finished, reboot your computer and see how you go. NOTE you may need to repeat this procedure if errors are found. (if you can't locate the correct disc, it's OK to borrow one from a chum, as long as it's the correct version for your machine (WIN XP Pro or HOME with SP2)
11 I see you do not hava Java installed...it might be wise to go here:
this is the version needed.
Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update 6
(The Java SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications. )
12 as its possible that a repair installation of Windows may be required at some stage in the future, so it would be wise to check that your back up/archive/copy of all important stuff
(anything that would create a problem if it was lost) on the machine is 100% up to date, accurate and reproducible. Use of external media is recommended for this. Even if it is only a day or so out of date take the opportunity now to correct it just to be on the safe side
Post back and let us know how you go
