Can't Connect to Internet

Good morning from Sweden!

A couple days back I removed Aluria and my IPs virus shield from my PC. Now, I can't connect to the Internet! I get either the "This Page Can't be Shown" message or another smaller one that says I can't connect to the page. (My messages are in Swedish and my translation may not be exact.)

I've tried refreshing Windows by running the Windows reinstall CD that came with my Dell.

I've gone through RUN to winipcfg and updated everything.

My IP guy says it's probably a virus (can that happen in a matter of seconds?). He suggests running a free virus program...but seems to have forgotten that I can't connect to the Net to download such a program.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

THANK YOU!

No, I never did get a reply to my Internet access problem, but I found the answer under someone else's post - the Winsock fix.

I copied the Winsock fix to a diskett at work, brought it home, popped it in, and let it do it's job - and I up and running again.

I LOVE THIS SITE!

Many thanks to all of you who share your knowledge and experience with the rest of us.
