firelite identified 3 files which were removed but still won't work. i changed settings in zone alarm to allow minimal security but no go. help? i can't update my scanners to the newest because they can't get online either. only thing i know works is aim6. i cannot ping to websites.

anyone?
cleared w/ avg, antivir, spybot. removed a number of trojans. uninstalled and reinstalled firefox, ie, and zonealarm
still no ie or firefox connection. although the error message is changed. now it says something to the effect that the network link was disconnected.

Give us the error message you are getting verbatim. I would guess that the viruses messed with your network connection settings and something there just needs to be changed back.

Maybe it's an ISP problem. Have you tried to contact your ISP?
