    Major Ie & Windows Help Needed!!!!!!!

    Hi to all. I'm new here and looking for major help. Currently I have a some really bad issues with my computer.

    1. First any link in IE that opens a new window will not work. It produces a blank window that states Microsoft Internet Explorer on the title bar and nothing more.

    2. Windows automatic update and System Restore do not work. When I go to windows.com and try to load updates I get the checking screen that goes nowhere. The home link and log links are not highlighted and are not linkable. I also cannot download service pack two.

    3. My desktop constantly flashes and except for my wallpaper everything disappears. Occasionally the quick icons are gone.

    I am running XP with service pack one
    Norton Antivirus 2005
    Webroot Spy Sweeper and Window Washer.

    I have been using Firefox and I am starting to like it but my wife still uses IE. It is aggravating not being able to link any new window links.

    I am more concerned with the update and restore problems. I ordereed SP2 on disk but realize that it si probably going to take 2-3 monthes to get it.

    Any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

    Happy holiday season to all and thank you for any and all help and suggestions

    Sorry for the 3 posts but it is the only way I can post this cry for help.

    You have Norton AV installed so it's probably not a virus.
    You are using Window Washer, I personally would advise against using any 'cleaning' program on XP; if you are not 100% sure of the value of the keys marked for removal, don't use it.
    Many of the 'cleaning' programs remove important system keys.

    See if system restore has been switched off:
    Start > My Computer, and then click Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    uncheck the "Turn off System Restore"

    If system restore now works, go back to a point when you know XP was functioning correctly.
    Do this before updating to SP2! important!

    The Window Update link is not always correct, try a direct link:
    http://v4.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/
    or
    http://v5.windowsupdate.microsoft.com/

    Not a viable option; many corporate and online banking sites will not work correctly in Firefox

    Restore is not turned off. I should have been clearer. System restore runs and restarts my computer but always states UNABLE TO RESTORE no changes have been made to your computer. I have have tried 4 different dates.

    I need IE for some of my banking and bill paying sites.

    The direct links still do not work but thanks.

    I don't see anything wrong in your log, but try downloading the newest version of HJT and post a new log.

    Also Norton misses many viruses and trojans. See one of my other posts around here for a link to sysclean, trend micros free one-time removal tool.

    Do you have multiple user accounts on your pc? If so, does this one have admin priviledges?

    If all else fails find your hard drive manufacturers web site, download their diagnostics tool and check your pc. Then find a copy of memtest86 and run that. Then update drivers...

    Also did you deliberately modify your netscape preferences with the stuff showing in the log? I can't find any info on the timebomb line...

    btw opera has an 'identify as IE' mode that might get you into the banking sites, if you need to get there. (google 'opera')

    I do not have any other accounts but the main one.

    I downloaded Hijack yesterday so I think it's the newest one.
    I'll try the Compaq's web site .

    Sorry I don't understand the timebomb question.

    Thanks for the help.
    Thanks.

    If you feel comfortable editing your registry try reinstalling IE

    Well these lines here:
    N3 - Netscape 7: # Mozilla User Preferences
    // This is a generated file!

    user_pref("browser.bookmarks.added_static_root", true);
    user_pref("browser.download.dir", "G:\\Clips");
    user_pref("browser.history.last_page_visited", "http://channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers/7/su_setup70.jsp");
    user_pref("browser.search.defaultengine", "engine://C%3A%5CProgram%20Files%5Cmozilla.org%5CMozilla%5Csearchplugins%5Cgoogle.src");
    user_pref("browser.startup.homepage_override.mstone", "rv:1.0.1");
    user_pref("dom.disable_open_during_load", true);
    user_pref("intl.charsetmenu.browser.cache", "UTF-8, windows-1252, ISO-8859-1");
    user_pref("prefs.converted-to-utf8", true);
    user_pref("privacy.popups.first_popup", false);
    user_pref("privacy.popups.remove_blacklist", false);

    user_pref("security.warn_submit_insecure", false);
    user_pref("signon.SignonFileName", "86669735.s");
    user_pref("timebomb.first_launch_time", "10987566
    are Netscape/Mozilla preferences. However, they are the sort of thing I would expect to see put there by advanced users. Some of them suppress error messages and popups. So if you didn't deliberately do that then maybe check the boxes next to them and fix them. You can always undo it from your backups in HJT if you did really want them.

    BTW move HJT into a folder of it's own before doing anything.
