    a-squared found a few other things. Do you use any remote admin. tools?

    Has the computer acted any different since quarantining the items?

    yes I did.
    Since we ran registry cleaner i can no longer update my virus scan software. Ie7 does not work and msn instant messenger. Outlook is our as well. The registry must of got overwritten and screwed thingsup

    Lets try this.

    Re-install IE 7.

    * First go here to Download IE 7 to the desktop. (don't install it yet)

    * Uninstall the version of IE you have installed now, to do so follow these steps:
    1 Click Start
    2 Click Control Panel
    3 Double click Add or Remove Programs
    4 Scroll down until you find Internet Explore
    5 Then click Change/Remove, and follow the prompts.

    ** Note: If you are unable to see IE7 in Add or Remove Programs follow these steps:
    1 Click Start
    2 Click Run
    3 Type or copy and paste, into the text box:
    %windir%\ie7\spuninst\spuninst.exe
    4 Then Press Enter **
    * Restart your computer.
    * Install the fresh version of Internet Explorer 7.


    Then go to http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com/ and check for any updates.


    If this does not fix IE the try a Repair Install. http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm#RI

    definately,
    I wound up using the system restore. This box has a hidden partition with a copy of the image that returned the box to when the PC was shipped new.
    Thanks for the effort.

    I'm glad you are back to normal, but as that was probably one step from last resort it is not comforting.

    Thanks for letting us know.
