I thought I was having trouble logging on to the internet, so I did a very stupid thing. I downloaded the Winsock2fixwindows98/98se/me and now I can't access the internet at all. My computer says I need to put my 98 disc in for the proper file. "I DON'T HAVE THAT DISC ANYMORE!!!" What can I do? :tazz: :) pastorchuck

This will rebuild rather than restore the registry and also replace missing or corrupt system files

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

Thanks for the help but it didn't seem to work, fortunately I found my disc and reinstalled it on my computer. I am not sure I didn't damage or remove anything in the process. Here is my hijack log...if that may help. It seems as if my computer is working fine now... thanks again. :tazz:

Please do not post hijack this logs in any other forum than the malware forum as it will incourage others to do so as well. Your log has been removed and re-attached as a text file
