    If I got some weird virus from
    http://www.graceandbeauty.com/samples/gbSample1_sm7-5k.wmv which deleted
    my original network connection and created a new connection, which now
    prevents my yahoo messenger from seeing chat rooms and google earth from
    connecting to the authentication server. What changes would have been
    made. I could have sworn I saw the connection name change to "Connection
    2". As I am on cable internet. Can I just create a new connection and
    delete the old one. I have disabled the odd file that was in msconfig
    and deleted he odd folder that the file was in and AVG and Ad-Aware have
    not detected any odd files.

    Internet Explorer also does not work. Firefox works fine.

    Open Internet Options, Connections tab, click the "Lan Settings" button,
    deselect all.

    Also download, install, update and run Malwarebytes

    You sure do use the term HoopleHead often. How long did it take you to learn
    it?
    Who are you trying to impress?

    It is good learning/practice to get your system infected on purpose,
    then you can learn how to fix it without "trying" things.

    Bring on those infections, wont boots, BSODs and other oops and
    malfunctions!

    Malfunctioning computers tremble in my presence.
