02 wireless usb malfunction

Specs: Windows XP, 512
i have read and read and see no answers. so i am asking as i am really frustrated. i have side by sides going on, and now my o2 dongle keeps not connecting, or rather it connects but sends not recieves packets, so i cannot connect to the internet. also avast will not let me look at it until i disconnect from the internet, even though i am not connected. it all worked fine in march, but on my return here i put money on the dongle and now this.i also have a VC80.MFCLOC could not be found. my usb port is old school now so not up to speed but that was not an issue before. the warning in events of the DNS client service could not contact any DNS server is also showing. it tells me to verify my TCP/IP configuration, but i dont understand any of ity. can someone please point a gun at my head or point me in the right direction. i was in germany last week anand hard wired and had no problems. it seems this i hope is a wireless only problem, but i only have wireless here so i am not absolutely sure of this. it somehow connected just now so i am able to send this, but the skin is disabled and shows no connection, weird?? i await someones input but i do not hold much hope

A lot of people refuse to accept it, but USB internet receivers often have a shorter life expectancy.

I hate to say it, but I think in this case, a new receiver would be best. The error your getting about a file not being found is not good. I would recommend re-running the CD and installing/repairing, but.. since I am not familiar with the receiver your using, I'm going by what I know.

In all honesty though, I would pick up a new receiver. Anything DLink, Belkin, or Linksys works great.

thanks, i have since posting, made one discovery, i closed avast and then attempted to bring it back up on the screen, and it worked. so i am now able to surf and all the skins work. i am determined to get to the bottom of this, if for nothing else than learning something. i see what you are saying, i also have a wireless card freebox which slips in the side(dell inspiron4100) this seems to work ok with the 02 software, but perhaps i need other software to run the freebox instead of 02. i have uninstalled installed system restored scanned with advanced syst care malwarebytes and the list goes on, all to no avail.i do think it is more a software issue than the dongle, ...but i shall run tests and see just the same. thanks for the input
