Situation is as follows, I'm running Windows XP, and recently upgraded to broadband, firewall was old and lots of nasties came through.
I've taken the broadband off and am back on dial up, have tried to clean lots of things off, having now installed mcafee security suite 7, ad-aware and spybot.
We have 2 user log ons for windows, on one of them, as we are on dial up, the dial up request box keeps popping up automatically every ten seconds, but when connected, seems to work fine.
The second Windows user log on will connect through dial up, but will not connect to any web pages at all, just keeps saying URL not recognised.
Before I start to go through the spyware / trojan threads, is there anything obvious as to why one would be asking constantly to connect to the internet, while the other will not connect to any web pages?
