I went to the site, downloaded the tool, and it validated. I do know this person isn't too stupid. He had everyone's computers at a large company here, in town, set up to crash so they would have to come back to him. He was one of the only techs in town. He ended up fired for it. I used to have so much trouble with mine crashing before, and then I discovered this site. He had my firewall disabled among other things, and I ended up with aurora. It wasn't until I quit using the router he gave us that I had problems with the connections. I only have one PC. I started using the d-link that came with our SBC DSL. I have re-installed it several times, and the limited or no connectivity still enjoys hanging around! :tazz: The pppoe is the only way I can connect to the internet. Also, when I got the computer back, I had a DVD player and things that I had not asked for, including XP. I think he was trying to make it look as if he was being nice and fixing our computer up for us. I don't know though! Let me know what else you think I should do! Your advice is truly appreciated.


Thank you,

Kristi :)

I can if needed, but would it be okay for me to buy another one? The reason I ask is because the last time we inserted a disk he gave us, there was some sort of stealth program put on our computer. The malware forum helped me with that. Or would it be okay to just upgrade to pro edition?

Thanks,

Kristi

by all means...if you're willing to buy another copy of xp...it wouldn't hurt to have...and could possibly make some of this stuff easier

Thanks,

Thank you,

Hi Kristi,

Could you please tell us what exactly happened during the sfc scan? Were you prompted to repair/replace any files?

Also, since you say that you never asked for Windows XP to be installed in the first place, did this Limited or no connectivity message appear before, or after you had your computer "repaired" by your technician? If after, how long after?

The first time I ran the sfc scan, the computer asked me to insert the disk. I ran it again with the disk in, and it went through the whole scan.

The limited or no connectivity happened after our computer was "repaired" ...We removed the router and it popped up. If I plugged the router back in, it went away. But we don't need a router so that is when I decided to contact you for help :tazz: !!!

Thanks,

Kristi
