Hello, I wasn't sure if this should be posted here, or in the other Internet forum so I apologize if this is the wrong forum.
In any event, I've had a major problem with my internet since this past friday. I ran Ad
-Aware 6.0 to kill some spyware that was lagging my connection and it found a lot of stuff. So I had it removed. After rebooting, everytime I connected to the net I was unable to view webpages. It would simply give me page not displayed.
I thought it might be my isp, but I've tried other isp's since and all return the same result. They can all connect, and when using dial up networking, the connection tab shows bytes being both sent and received, but still I'm unable to connect to anything be it websites, instant messenge etc.
I've tried just about everything I could including making sure SSL and the rest were checkmarked in Internet Tools, though PCT isn't on the list under security and I'm running IE6.
I've tried changing my internet options, connection settings, networking settings, etc. Nothing seems to fix it. I've uninstalled and resintalled my dial up adapter and modem repeatedly as well. I've run the win98se troubleshooter extensively and followd everything It told me to do, including verifying my winsock.dll files and restoring them off the win98se cd. I've checked Device manager many times as well to see if it reported any errors and it has not.
I also tried a few other things that I don't recall off hand.
Yet, still, I'm able to connect, but not actually "connect" apparently.
Any help on this problem would be greatly appreciated and thank you for your time.
