Following on from previous problems with switching on/switching off I decided to reload my boot XP disc. It seems to have resolved that problem but now I've tried to download the microsoft updates today, and 90 failed to install.
It asked something about Active X and checking for genuine microsoft software but I didn't get the option to click anything
I wonder if it is something to do with my previous problem - re computer booting up and not shutting down?
I've just done a Spyware scan and it has found 3 trojans
Tracking cookie.yield manager Tracking cookie.web trends and Downloader.small sth - it says this one is high risk and is in C\doc&setting\user\cookies\[email protected]d manager (2) txt can I get rid of this?
I can't seem to start the PC in safe mode, when pressing F8 there doesn't appear to be an option
I managed to install all the updates that came up, manually but there is something wrong with Internet Explorer. The only site I can access is Microsoft, and whenever I ask it to download something I just get a frozen screen which won't load up.
I've tried to uninstall Internet Explorer and re install it but the same thing is happening each time.
