I think I have a virus

  User-CB94CED6-F3AA-42E7-8A286564F5DCBC14 08:49 07 Mar 2008

Suddenly on one of my acounts (this is a limited account on my XP Pro) IE7 opens and then immediatly closes. Firefox reports it cannot connect.

On my admin account they work OK (or seem to).

I created another limited account and the same problem occurs

Advice welcome.

Have you done a virus and spyware scan?

Have you tried a repair of IE7

Open IE7 select tools,internet options,advanced,reset.

I have reinstalled XPpro as if I have a virus and it cannot be identified with Norton, AAW or Spybot it is well hidden.

Now all the trial of setting up my network etc.

If you have reinstalled windows and not done a repair do remember to reinstall you motherboard drivers before you do anything else. If not you might find some bits don't work right.

This link explainns how to make programs work in a limited account that do work in an administrative account.

Be careful, as it involves changing the registry
