Firefox is also installed on this computer and works fine. I can do without IE but am concerned about not having System Restore.
I have tried the following:
Ran ewido malware removal, Spybot and Ad-Aware (all in Safe Mode), system was clean.
Ran Trend Micro Housecall, system was clean.
HiJack This had a few “nasty” entries but removing them made no difference.
Ran sfc /scannow.
Repaired Internet Explorer and System Restore using the command line “rundll……” commands.
Turned off all Startup programs via msconfig.
Turned off all Internet Explorer Add-Ons.
I can ping everything ok.
I’m pretty much out of options other than a Repair Install of XP. I have about 30 gig’s of family photos on here that I need to back up first. Any other suggestions?
I can provide my HJT log if needed.
