Hi,

I had some unsolvable errors with my windows xp after trying to clear an infection. I was working with a tech on the issue on the malware forum. We decided that the best path was to reformat and reinstall windows xp. When I tried to install the proper driver I still wasn't able to connect. He directed me to the dell website with a listing of drivers. He told me to install the fifth one down. I tried to unzip it, but my dell computer just says the file has an error 110 and didn't unzip. It says something about the need for two files.

My computer is a Dell latitude D531 with windows xp.

Thanks for your help :)

try this...
go here and get JustZIPit Installation takes only a single-click as the application merely adds two items to your Context menu...
click on the zipped folder and it will open or you can right click on the zipped folder and select unzip it

I downloaded the file to my flash drive and attempted to install it on the latitude. It come up with an error message because it wants to connect online and can't.

try running sfc /scannow from the command prompt...

Sfc /scannow will inspect all of the important Windows files on your computer, including Windows DLL files. If System File Checker finds an issue with any of these protected files, it will replace it.

Important: You must be logged in as a user with administrator rights in order to run the sfc /scannow command.
