Please can someone offer a bit of advice?
On a laptop i have(Vista), i have just followed the advice regarding disabling services from Black Viper's site (recommended to me on this forum, i have uninstalled a bit of HP bloatware and restarted the computer.
Now i find that even though it says it is connected wirelessly to the internet, Firefox or IE dont connect. Oddly, Firefox doesn't even try to bring up the homepage of Google and is blank and says 'new tab' with a white background. IE just says 'connecting'
Also, i have an a box coming up telling me that dial up connection isn't working...i haven't used dial up for over 7 years!!
Finally, Avast is failing to connect and it suggested that the firewall was maybe blocking it so i checked and my firewall was off!! Now i have turned it back on it says it is 'not using the recommended settings'?
I apologise for putting all the errors im suffering into one post but i thought i should offer as much info as possible in order for someone to help me.
that is brilliant. Yes the annoying dial up thing has now stopped and i used system restore in safe mode and it worked.
One thing i will say was odd that when i clicked on system restore (before id gone into safe mode) it wouldn't appear. If i clicked on it again it would just tell me that it was already running but it wasn't showing as running in the task manager. Have anyone an idea why this was so?

It sometimes happens when a program is slow to respond/open and by clicking on it again you get that message that it is already running.
Had you waited for it to respond you wouldn't have seen the "error" message.
