  1. Hi, Can anyone please help, I have a problem on my son's computer. we have lost access to the internet I just keep getting a message stating "limited or no connectivity" I have tried resetting the network wizard in Windows XP but to no avail, I have tried the repair connection facility but that says " unable to set IP address" We connect through a D link wireless router. my computer down stairs connects fine.
    I don't know if this is connected to the problem but when I boot up the computer I get a message stating that Rundll C:\PROGRAM~1\NEWDOT~\NEWDOT~1.DLL is missing or cannot be loaded has that caused the problem?
    Thanks in anticipation.

    You have spyware

    NEWDOT is spyware that hijacks your web browser and host file. You need to remove it. First you need to remove this key from the registry
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run\new.net startup
    After you have deleted this key you need to reboot your system. Then run msconfig and go to startup and stop these process
    (may or may not exist):
    ndnuninstall4_50.exe
    ndnuninstall5_20.exe
    ndnuninstall5_40.exe
    ndnuninstall5_48.exe
    uninstall3_88.exe
    uninstall4_50.exe
    uninstall4_80.exe
    uninstall5_48.exe
    uninstall5_20.exe
    wcmdmgr.exe
    Then you will need to do a file search for newdot(here is an example list)
    newdot~1.dll
    newdot~2.dll
    newdotnet3_36.dll
    newdotnet3_70.dll
    newdotnet3_88.dll
    newdotnet4_50.dll
    newdotnet4_85.dll
    newdotnet4_88.dll
    newdotnet5_20.dll
    newdotnet5_48.dll
    newdotnet6_22.dll
    newdotnet6_30.dll
    newdotnet6_38.dll
    You will have to unregister each of then and then delete them. If you don't know how go to this site http://articles.networktechs.com/111-p1.php
    Then remove the folder %program_files%\newdotnet
    And to finish it up run a regcleaner if you don't have one here is a link to one

    Hope this helps.

    watch this program as it will stop programs that u may want to start when u boot, I am still working on that and have not solved it yet. But it will definately get rid of things that donot need to boot.
