New to the forum,
But not new to the world of computers with issues.
I just recently brought home with me my friends Dell Dimension E150.
The system that is operating on this machine is Windows XP Media Edition.
I ran SpyBot S&D to at least get to clean up some things in the PC.
Then I did a Disk Clean up to hopefully let the PC breath a little.
Then I installed McAfee to delete any other virus or malware that may be on the PC.
Well it froze mid way after removing a few things.
Now when I boot up I get a message that stat that an error has occurred with startdvr.exe.
That when I search on google brought me to this site
There was also another error that came up when McAfee states it found a trojon stating that lanmandrv.exe has an issue deleting or being quarantined.
Also I tried to get on the internet and it wont go on.
And when I go into network places I get an error message that state the following:
"The Network connections folder was unable to retrieve the list of network adapters on your machine. Please make sure that the network connections service is enabled & running"
Also there is no Local Area Network Icon in the Network connections section under my network places.
Any help to help me finish cleaning out this PC and getting it back on the internet and updated would be greatly appreciated.
Also I don't think that just erasing and redoing the PC is an option at this point unfortunately due to the fact I don't think they have a CD to restore or have made a back up CD... (not as tech knowledgeable as moi but I cut them some slack lol!)
Again Thank You In Advance!
