Internet Explorer works and goes to all of the sites typed in the address bar, but other online applications will not go online, various non destructive Trojan Viruses were just removed from this system.

For example AVG will not go online and also Outlook Express can not get a connection.

The online connection is Verizon via wireless, the PC is a general Compaq PC with average hardware installed.

:grin: :grin: :eek: :sigh:

Some of the system files may have become pooched, Run the System File Checker

Go to the Run box on the Start Menu and type in:

sfc /scannow ( sfc if not reconized) (Note that there is a space between sfc and /scannow)

This command will immediately initiate the Windows File Protection service to scan all protected files and verify their integrity, replacing any files with which it finds a problem.


In all likelihood you will be prompted to insert the Windows XP CD

Also check that your software firewall isn't blocking any programs access....and that your router isn't blocking any particular ports.
