My computer is supposedly clean, but I'm still experiencing the same symptoms. The tech who helped me suggested I check the XP forums as the next step.
I can't connect to certain sites like walmart.com, photobucket.com, and others. These sites connect fine from another computer on the same network. I even used HostExpert.zip to restore my hosts file from what Spybot created. I actually connected to walmart.com right after that successfully, but then the next time I visited, it was unable to connect again. No changes to the host file occurred that I could see.
Also my clock is in a 24hour format, and I can't seem to figure out how to change it.
Here are the basic specs.
XP Service Pack 3
Pentium® D CPU 2.80 GHZ
1.00 GB RAM
Any help would be greatly appreciated because I can't figure out for the life of me what is going on.
