  1. One other thing to mention............if you are running XP, be sure to turn off system restore before you scan . It may be too late now, but if system restore is on, you will just put the viruses back on there when you reboot the computer.


    To turn off system restore, right click "my computer", select "properties", click the "system restore" tab and put a check in "turn off system restore". To turn it back on....remove the check from the box.

  2. Dickster, I have W2K running with a Phoenix Award bios. If your bios is the same, Look in the bios under "Advanced", "Advanced Chipset Features", and see if the "USB Controler" is "enabled". That's what mine is set to. I have no problem with USB. If yours is a different bios, look for something similar.

  3. Well, if you're not seeing a fax icon in the control panel, something must not be installed correctly. If the fax device (modem) is not present, there will be no fax icon in control panel according to MS.




    Quoted from the above site: "You must have a fax device (such as a modem) installed for the Fax icon to appear in Control Panel."

  4. In control panel click the fax icon. You will have to add a fax printer...configure the settings. When you need to fax from the computer, open the document, select print from the file menu then select fax instead of your printer. That should do it. :)

  5. What the h... is going on in here! I see my name all over the place! Now somebody has really got some explaining to do! R A D I OOOOOOO what happened? :pullhair: I just asked a simple question :blink: Hummm I got my eye on all you people......can't turn my back one minute. :santahat: And....and....and...I didn't break the board....wasn't my fault! :santahat:

  6. Do a online scan here and see if it finds anything. That looks nasty to me but I can't find much on it. Maybe a Spybot scan and a Hijack This scan might shed some light on it. I read some post on another board and a suggested download of Ewido here and update it and run it may help. I'm running out of options :(

  7. I tend to like this one, although there are several. If one don't find anything, try another. Also, if something is found, be sure system restore is turned off or the virus won't be removed. This one may have to be removed manually.

    As for your updated driver, you could roll back to the other driver and see if you still have the problem. If the problem disappears, then I would say a bad driver...maybe someone else might have something to add...

  8. The errors are very similar to errors generated when you are infected with the haxdoor virus. Microsoft has it listed here. I don't know if this is what you have but I would do some scanning just to be safe.


    P.S. I saw you talking to yourself so I thought I would pop in to keep you from going crazy! :P

  9. Check in device manager and see if the usb ports have an exclamation point in any of them. To get there, right click on my computer, properties, hardware tab, device manager button. Scroll down to universal serial bus controlers. Make sure nothing is plugged into any usb port. If there is a exclamation piont there, highlight it and delete it, exit out and reboot the machine to let windows reload that port. You may need to get a registry cleaner to clean up any remnents left behind from un-installing all that software. Basicaly, you want to start all over except this time, install all the software and drivers before you plug in that dongle. :)
