I am unable to connect to the internet because I am getting a message something like this: communication port busy (or something like that).
Here's what I have done:
1. checked the phone line -- it works
2. followed Windows Help menu for the problem -- tried their suggestions, no go.
3. checked com ports - seem to be working
4. performed spybot and adaware -- each found 3 problems, resolved.
5. tried to do a System Restore to last friday -- computer wouldn't let me, after close to 2 hours of trying...
5. turned the computer off numerous times....no change.
I'm writing this from my work computer, I obviously cannot download Hijack This at home, and can't download it here, either. And if you haven't already guessed, I'm an idiot with computer stuff.
Anything you can suggest would be most appreciated.....thanks!
