The problem(s) I've been having is/are with Fire Fox and Explorer.

First the FireFox problem. When I star FireFox I get an error message that says "FireFox unable to locate componet. This application has failed to start because WININET.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem." but then it still works just fine minus afew sites that won't work right.
Then there is Explorer. It won't work at all. When I start it the window comes up but at the top it says "Explorer - Invalid Syntax Error" then where Yahoo should come up it just shows the run of the mill this page cannot be displayed...... bla bla bla .... check the address ......bla bla bla message.

I have searched every where and haven't found a single thing that has helped fix this :tazz: . I would greatly apreciate any help :) .

also the last virus scan found that Win32/Nsag was infected but it could fix it. (I only have AVG Free Adition)

Hi Nirvanafreak1980...Welcome to G2G!

Information on Win32/Nsag can be found Here.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the Start Here.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
