FYI. I just got a backup harddrive a few days ago and I plugged it in this morning. Everything backed up fine, worked like a charm. I scanned it, clean (hence the earlier post). However, I just tried to have it search for updates and it gave me an error which said that i didn't have an internet connection. I tried it four or five times, no help. So, I came on here to post that little tidbit and decided to try it again and it worked. No clue

Ok,

It took me a little longer to get around to it than I thought, but I repaired XP. During the repair there were 2 RUNDLL errors saying that there were missing entries in msnsspc.dll and msasspc.dll. After startup, the first time there was an error in c:\windows\system32\iernounce.dll and and Invalid Parameter error "No response file listed". I've restarted a few times, installed SP3 and the errors have gone away. However...

Still load both IE and FF with their respective weird homepages. And, in a new wrinkle, clicking on the home button in IE or entering an address in the location bar will open a new FF tab with that info. If I type www.phdcomics.com in the IE location bar, I will get a FF tab open to that site.

Still cannot edit the registry or open the clock.

Since you have all data backed up, I think, you're gonna go for clean reinstall: http://www.michaelst...nxpinstall.html
Personally, I see no other options.

Hey,

Well, I had to man up and do a clean install of XP. I ditched NIS and Spysweeper in favor of McAfee Total Protection. Whatever problems I had have obviously been solved by the Etch-A-Sketch Restart Method. Everything is humming along just fine now.

Thanks for all of the help. I wish we could've gotten to the root of the problem just so others in my situation might have been helped, but regardless, it's fixed now.

Sincerely,

-Nick
