MS IE help

always with someone elses puter


I have a problem getting onto ebay. No issues before. CLSB is fine. I think it has something to do with the script or the secure site.

type in ebay, ebay page loads up, then a death window shows up

"can not connect to ebay.com .... operation aborted" Then it makes the IE screen pop up that cant find page .


some other sites will do the same.

ive tried reinstalling IE, playing around with IE settings. There was a virus on the puter b4, which got removed.

Sounds like the virus isn't totally removed then.

Check your HOSTS file for any BS entries. Open notepad, choose file->open and then paste this string into the path and click ok:

%systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Unless you've fucked with it, the only uncommented entry should be "127.0.0.1 locahost"

# This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
#
# This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
# entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
# be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# space.

# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.

when i wasn't busy watching thundercats, i was playing with an apple II e.


the virus is easy to find. The harder ones for me are the adwares. They get deleted and come back. And a lot of the anti virus dont work.


I find xp harder to move around then win 98. It seems they make it more user friendly and hide more of the programs i need to fix it.


woohoo modern marvels is back on. l8er

The reason they are coming back in XP is because you HAVE TO disable the system restore before you remove them, its just putting them back on there.

"When in doubt, use full throttle. It may not improve your situation, but it will end the suspense."

Do a safety start as it starts keep tapping f8 until it dings and gives you a creen that says start in safe mode.
Start in safe mode then run all your anti-virus stuff.
A very good one I found is www.stopsign.com

Run AVG as an anti virus. It works great and it's free.
