Here is my problem;

When I try to conect to a dial up account, I get a message saying for me to check the content advisor settings. When I try to connect to the internet, I can get online fine & check my email but can not browse the net. Sometimes I can if I type in the content advisor password.

Here is what I have done;

Tried a different internet account, deleted dial up networking & all internet settings & reinstalled dial up networking with all the internet settings. I also ran an updated virus scan & did find a virus & removed it. It was a trojan dialer virus. After I removed the virus I still get the same thing to happen.... I uninstalled network adapter & all network settings & reinstalled them. I even tried to hook this computer up to a cable internet connection & it would not work...

I still get the dang message saying for me to check the content advisor settings. I have checked them & set them at all possible settings available with the correct password & it is like it will not accept the changes for some reason. I have also tried to disable the content advisor & when I do, I hit apply & then OK & I can restart the computer & the content advisor is enabled again & all the settings I have made are back to where I changed them from. This computer is now virus free & I can not understand what is going on. I am running Windows 98se with IE 5.5. I thought about trying a windows update if I could browse the net & seeing if that would help...

This computers dial up account is a proxy account but I have deleted it & removed all proxy settings & am trying a new dial up non proxy account...

Is there a way for me to totaly wipe out this content advisor so it will not even work? Or is there anything else I can do. I am on the verge of reinstalling Windows completely but hate to do this. I am sure the virus it had did this but am clueless as to what to do. Please help!!!

Which version of IE do you have? You can try upgrading or even just reinstalling it.
