Yes!! thank you!! I will try that next and let you know. I am running spy sweeper again and it has found 34 spy cookies so far. Is there a way to reset the dell to factory defaults. It is new to me so I have nothing in it to lose. It was givin to me but I have no paperwork or recovery disk. Thanks again!!

Open internet explorer and click on tools/internet options/connections/Lan Settings and uncheck proxy server if it is checked. Then try getting online.

Also, clean out your cookies and temporary internet files (always a good idea), and then run Malwarebytes to make sure that you got all of the little nasties.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.

If still not working, probably it's due to faulty winsock catalog, could try this winsockfix and see how it goes.

YEAH..!! Thanks for all of you help! I did get it up and running. I don't understand it but I ran spy sweeper one more time and found nothing more! Then for the heck of it I loaded the disk for Century Tele the phone co. here that my internet runs through.

It prompted me for a few questions, and after that all is good!
Don't understand that cuz I took the cable from the dektop which was working, and plugged it into the laptop and NOT!!

Plus I had used the laptop for several days prior to the virus.
Nasty virus too..'AV SECURITY SUITE"

Thanks again for all uor help!!
