I have had problems downloading from certain sites. I keep getting an error 403 in IE and Mozilla disallowing me access to download. I had tweakmaster installed and used it to increase my connection speed. I have since uninstalled it and tried to use System Restore to go to a healthier point, but it won't restore to any point. The biggest goof of all is that I download torrents and have left my computer on downloading for hours at a time. I set Zone Alarm to allow only Utorrent access to the internet if left unattended. I came home one day to find a warning that Zone Alarm had to close. Now I got spooked. Ever since, I have had thousands of blocked intrusions and the problem with downloading has occurred. I run Spybot Search and Destroy regularly as well as Zone Alarm Pro's deep scan and Norton Antivirus 2005 full scan and it comes up with nothing except 2 in quarantine from about a month ago: Idup.exe and inform.exe
I have had trouble using ghost 9.0 to restore my C:Drive image. I have used updated RAID drivers and in recovery environment it recognizes all my drives and partitions but gives me an error when I browse and select my back up image disallowing me to go any further.
Can I go to a system restore point bypassing the Accessories/System Tools/System Restore method? Do you have any advice for the ghost problem? Or, should I do a clean install of XP SP2?
