Msn programmes blocked

  User-109F35F6-4DAB-4E9E-819A05997724F778 10:45 18 Apr 2005

I cannot access any programmes connected to Msn.Internet explorer etc come up with "cannot find server". I noticed when I type in the address becomes corrupted to click here... I am a new forum member and would appreciate any help.I use XP and AOL broadband.

Sounds like you have aquired a bit of spyware try running scans with click here and click here A2 Free is also ok but the site seems to be having a bad day at least on my i cant connect to get you the link,also this click here all will run quite well together download update and run.


I have managed to clear the spurious letters at the address and can now access msn, but still cannot get into messenger IE or windows update.Thanks for the help so far.Acolyte.

Did u run the scans in safe mode ? Also if u can start in safe mode with networking support and connect to the net you can run this click here

i had a simalar problem and contacted MSM who gave me a number of fixes for this , they were not hard to understand and i fixed the problem with their second recomendation

I am not pinching his thread,we are trying to sort this together.An extra piece of information omitted earlier is that there is a yellow exclamation mark through the double computer icon in the system tray, and when you hover it says "limited access only available".This suggests to me that something is blocking it.Firewall or some other protection,perhaps.He has McPhee and AOL and also XP firewall is activated.

Are you running more than one firewall. If so switch one off.

Thanks Oldone,we have tried that but no luck.

The limited accses is usually only for networked pc's are you trying to accsess these through a networked Lan pc? if so you need to run the network wizard again on both pc's.Also just try leaving windows firewall on to test it, if it works.
