I attempted to remove Grokster, which had been placed on my machine by my lad. I first ran Ad-Aware which removed several spyware, but required a reboot to remove the rest. After rebooting, the message run-time error 62...reading past eof appeared, and I now cannot connect to the internet. (I am using a different machine at the moment). Operating system is XP home.
You should really have tried add / remove programs first and then use Ad aware to clean up after.
First the error message. It an End Of File error. Not sure about this.
Second problem - INTERNET access. Some nasty spyware stuff likes to fiddle with the way your PC accesses the net. Remove the spyware and the fiddle stays put = no internet. There is a fix but i would suggest this first.
1) Open Ad Aware.
2) Click Open Quarantine List and restore everything it removed.
3) Remove Grokster using Add / remove Programs.
4) Scan again with Ad Aware.
5) If INTERNET connection is still down then try using LSP Fix - click here to repair.
