no wait for the all clear from Noahdfear
Will we need the network if you can log on?
Remember the network setup was to check your nic but since you put the new one in we now know it is not a nic problem

Just seems like we've eliminated almost everything and still have no idea why.

A couple of run entries have gone missing from your HijackThis log.

O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [*StateMgr] :\WINDOWS\System\Restore\StateMgr.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [StillImageMonitor] C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\STIMON.EXE

Did you remove these? Would you please click start>run and type msconfig then hit enter. On the startup tab, check the box next to all boxes and then close. Allow reboot. Create and post a new HJT log.

Still a lingering scheduled task. Open the control panel>scheduled tasks and see if there is an Anti-Virus.job listed. If so, remove it.

I know you have already run a Winsock fix, but would you please do so again. It will fit on floppy.

Reboot.

Please open a command prompt and type ipconfig /all, hit enter and let us know if you have a proper IP address, Subnet mask, Default Gateway, DHCP server, DNS server and lease obtained.

Yes, check everything. I need to see what is disabled.......to make sure it's not something that should be removed instead.

Ok. I'm rebooting now. Would love to know how to remove most of this stuff. Never could figure out where it is.

PCillan window loaded with option to close (clicked close)

Adobe Download Manager: A file has not been fully downloaded. Would you like to continue downloading it now? (tried to click Download Later, but computer is locked up).

Mouse still works, but can't click on anything and there are alot of items in my status bar (next to the time).

I have to hard reboot.

Scandisk is running. If I can get it back up, can I just list the contents for you to see, or do you still want it all to load?

Also, what about the config.sys file. It appears to be empty. Should there be something there?

Sorry to ask so many dumb questions. I started with DOS and I'm still trying to figure out how much is associated with Windows.

Hello, everyone! :) I hope you don't mind me poking my little nose in here. I just wanted to take a minute and congratulate you all on the amazing teamwork that has gone on in this thread for over a month now. totianni, you are by far about the MOST patient and willing-to-follow-directions member I think I've ever seen. You don't lose your cool, and you follow the instructions given to a "T". I wanted to give you kudos for that, and to tell you to hang in there. You've got a couple of our best working with you on this. You're in very good hands! :)

Keep up the great work, guys! :) :tazz:

If it won't load for you, reboot to safe mode and create a HijackThis log. If you disable those entries in msconfig again, it will take some manual registry editing to remove the ones we don't want. Easier to leave them checked and fix them with HijackThis. :)

Thanks Kat! :tazz:
