Hi, wondering if anyone can help. I have a PC running XP (not this one) that has stopped being able to connect to the internet (not the connection I'm using now). The broadband modem shows that it is connected, and the little icon in the right hand corner of the screen says likewise, connected but the browser comes up saying that the page cannot be found, no matter what web address is entered. Also, the XP firewall cannot be switched on. Running a virus check, it found the following files were infected:
Despite cleaning or deleting the files, the internet connection still doesn't work. I had Avast and it came up with pop-ups saying that the computer was under attack. I have now installed McAfee, including a firewall. It shows as their being no viruses but I still cannot get the internet browser to work. System restore doesn't work either.
Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks.
