lets see if you can work under a local network .
we need to set your computer up to see xp machines
I hope you have an XP disc if yes put in in your me machine.
To configure other computers on your home network
1. Insert the Windows XP Professional or Windows XP Home Edition operating system CD.
2. Under What do you want to do?, click Perform additional tasks.
3. In Perform additional tasks, click Set up a home or small office network.
4. In the dialog box welcoming you to the Network Setup Wizard, click yes to continue.
5. Follow the instructions on your screen.
I assume you can plug your machine and your sons machine in to separate connections? If yes then see if you can see his on the network.
If you can't go to his machine and in control panel run the network wizard on his machine.Can you see the other computer? if not can you ping the other computer?

When I click on My Network Places, Entire Network, I get an error "unable to browse the network. Windows is unable to gain access to the network. This may be for a number of reasons."
I wasn't able to set up the network as you described. Both computers came with XP. They are registered copies, but I only have a recovery disk for XP, and I couldn't find an application file to setup the network.
We've tried so many things and I know there were a few ideas that never got implemented. Maybe I should start back at the beginning???? I don't want to reformat, if at all possible. I would like to be able to get the network setup. I know there were a few problems with the initial reinstall. Maybe I should request a replacement disk from Microsoft and try a reinstall??? I know I have updated drivers downloaded, but maybe you could tell me what I need to backup to disk, since I don't have internet access to download new ones.
Where should I start now??? Thanks.

let's see if we get a reply
any chance of disconnecting the router and going straight through the modem?
How did you export the registry?

I exported the registry from within regedit to a file.

Have asked a malware guy to check your log.
We were on that's why I am thinking still malware
we ruled out the network card

Did I explain what you asked? Did it help?
Won't it be a real pain to try to fix the malware without an internet connection? Is there anyway to attach a desktop floppy drive to my son's laptop? I have a spare from my old system. It would at least save all the up and down to the dungeon to get to my husband's computer. Just a thought. I looked, but it didn't look promising.
And, I couldn't get the networking thing to go either. Maybe we could work on that to save some running, too????

How to fix malware without internet Don't know I know ZIP about malware.
When you boot me and press F8 does it give you an option for safe mode with network?
Posted 10 September 2005 - 02:29 PM
Guess we just have to wait for the malware solution/resolution?!
F8 boot just has safe mode -- no network option.

on your husbands machine do this if he lets you.
But 1st I reccomend you make a fresh restore point on his.
To start the Network Setup Wizard, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Network Connections. Under Common Tasks, click Network Setup Wizard.
• Run the Network Setup Wizard on the host computer first. The host computer is the one that will share its Internet connection.
• During the Network Setup Wizard, it is recommended that you create a floppy disk to run the Network Setup Wizard on Windows 98, Windows 98 Second Edition, and Windows Millennium computers on your network.
• The Network Setup Wizard can only be run on computers using Windows 98, Windows Millennium Edition, or Windows XP.

How do I check for "file share ON?"
I still have to make the disk. Had questions to ask first. Still have to "enter the dungeon...
I'm heading there now.

Do not forget rule 2
Do you want to wait
so you do not share a malware across the network?
