Hi, while I was using my computer all of a sudden I could not access any webpage. So. I thought it was the wireless connection, but it wasn't since the computer I"m on right now seems to be working fine. The computer with the problem is a Laptop/Netbook and the one the does work is a desktop if that matters. They both run XP Sp3.
Here is an error when starting my computer

Heres another

I did not get some errors until today after I did a virus scan and cleanup. I also thought it was Google Chrome since I get this error

When I started to read your post, I thought the problem was malware related. But at the end, when you said Firefox works, I was a little confused.
I still suggest you go here: http://www.geekstogo...cleaning-guide/
Follow the instructions, and post a new topic in the malware forum. Someone will help you clean your computer, and when they give you a clean bill of health, report back here.

One thing you could try is to disable proxies in your browsers: http://www.library.kent.edu/page/14299
This might fix the problem, and could tell us why only Firefox is working.

Okay, I'm going to try that, thanks. Oh, found out Firefox has some issues though. When I use bing, google or any search and get results and click the results it redirects me to a different site.

If that is the case, post immediately to the malware forum. They will sort you out. If you have any more questions, post back here. If you still have problems once a malware tech gave you a claen bill of health, post back in this topic.

I posted, but no reply since the 3rd. I'm not impatient, I just don't know if anyone can help me.
