I either end up getting a screen that says WEBPAGE COULD NOT BE FOUND, but the URL that shows up is http://ask.askredir................and many other words, letters, and #'s. OR it shows at the bottom of
the window this: "connecting to 188.8.131.52 and stays that way forever and never does connect.
I have done system restores going as far back as 1 month, and it comes up saying RESTORE INCOMPLETE cause nothing was added to the system to change it. I was on the phone with our internet provider techinicians today for over 2 hours, and nothing was resolved. They have told me to contact a computer repairman to find out what is happening, but with 8 children I cannot afford that. I need my computer to prepare for an upcoming craft show, but now cannot access the internet to do anything.
I am unable to download anything from the net to check my computer or scan it. I have Norton's Internet security, but it expired and I was unable to purchase the renewal. I have PC Doctor, but that shows nothing. I DID get a notice twice this week (before this happened) that said : spyware.marketscore has been detected. It said it was low risk and had been resolved, but it popped up multiple times during the day and night, 2 separate days (last one being the 27th), and that was the day before my computer started going flukey.
With not being able to access the net, what can I do to fix my computer? I AM currently on my husbands computer. His computer is hooked up as the main computer to the modem and router (high speed cablenet), and mine is connected also (this is NOT a wireless router). HIS IE works fine, yet mine doesn't.
HELP please. You all helped me before with the vundo virus, and the fujacks issue, and I trust your input, help, and knowledge!
