I am on dialup (no other access available). I have had the game Civilization on my computer for a while. The game stopped working, so I tried to uninstall. The Microsoft system, which had successfully uninstalled the game before, was unable to do so this time. In an attempt to get it off my Dell Precision Laptop, I used System Restore and went “back in time” a couple of weeks. This did not work either. However, I now had two of every icon on my desktop (2 shortcuts to Civilization, 2 Recycle Bins, etc.).
I then downloaded Revo Uninstaller Pro. It removed the game and put all the ‘extra icons’ that had been on the desktop, into the Recycle Bin. I was able to reinstall Civilization. I also uninstalled something called Internet Lock. (I have typed out a list of everything that is now in the Recycle Bin. I will provide this list if needed.)
The problem is, while I can connect to the IP, I can no longer access any sites (though I can pull up IE, but it takes me nowhere).
I restored the deleted Registry Items that were in the Recycle Bin, and they appeared on the desktop as an icon. When I double click that icon, a Registry Editor pop-up appears. It says “Are you sure you want to add the information in C:\Documents and Settings\User\Desktop\uninstall.reg to the registry?” There is a button yes and a button no. Which button do I hit, if any?
I have an Anti Virus control program, which cannot, of course, now access the internet. I also have Hijack This.
Help would be very much appreciated.
