To download fixes from microsoft's site I have to have "Client for Microsoft Networks" installed for the network adapter. When it is installed neither of my web browsers, ie or netscape, will connect to the internet. I installed it and did the auto update for windows, which worked. I then had to uninstall it to browse the internet. Initally when I tryed to d/l microsoft updates it wouldn't install. I found info on their site for the 0x80240020 error but then couldn't use my web browsers and uninstalled the "Client for Microsoft Networks". I couldn't find any trouble shooting on their site for my windows 2000 problem.

Thanks

Please describe your setup?
  • Broadband or dial-up?
  • Do you have a router?
  • Wireless or CAT5 Ethernet cable?
  • Desktop or laptop (make/model)
  • Did this ever work?
  • Is it a new computer or did you recently reload XP?

Your HJT log does have some questionable entries in it, but do the following first, then you can post in the malware removal form:
  • Open a Command Prompt (Start / Run, type cmd and press Enter).
  • Type ipconfig /all and press Enter
Post the output in a reply here please.

To copy data from a command prompt window, do the following:
  • Right click on the top window border (usually blue) and select Edit then Mark.
  • Use the left mouse button to highlight the text you want to copy, then click the right mouse button.

That all looks good. I think you need to post in th malware forum and see if htey agree about you having some questionable (meaning malware) on your computer.

Read through this area: Cleanup Your System.

This takes care of the many of the problems without further action by the Malware Gurus on this site.

If this doesn't do it, post a HijackThis log here: Malware Removal Forum.

Make sure you read the You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log article before posting.

Please be patient, this is a very active anti-malware site and the malware removal experts are extremely busy. It can take 1 to 3 days for them to get to you.
