Hello

I'm trying to fix a friend pc. Cleaned it up with adaware and spybot.
Checked for viruses. We still get a error when we dial out while in IE 6.0
saying that ie has caused and error in <unknown>. Netscape does the same
thing. I reinstall both. I even did a reinstall on top of the current ME
and deleted all of the network drivers and reinstalled them from scratch.

All other programs seem to be working fine. Any ideas


Thanks
Barry

IE errors in ,unknown are frequently caused by malware....

You may already have a virus/spyware hijack

download the Stinger from here and run it to make sure that A-V-disabling
viruses are not present on your PC
http://download.nai.com/products/mcafee-avert/stinger.e...

- update your virus scanner and run a full system scan of all files.

Reboot to Safe Mode and run CWShredder - to remove variants of the
CoolWebSearch hijacker.
http://www.merijn.org/cwschronicles.html

Use CWShredder, the removal tool:
http://www.intermute.com/products/cwshredder.html
(download it without the accompanying rubbish)

download AdAware SE Personal Edition from www.lavasoftusa.com, install,
update, and run it to remove spyware, adware, and other such nasties from
your system.

No - I didn't forget.
I don't EVER recommend Beta software in newsgroups - people have enough
problems without having to deal with possibly buggy applications

I agree with you, MSAS is right up there with the best - but it's still
Beta, and as such is best steered clear of, unless you're prepared to
reformat the system your using it on if it all goes pear-shaped.

Here is what I ran

Stinger
Adaware
Spybot
regclean
Norton AV

Still having problems. I unistalled and reinstalled the network. This pc
only has a modem and anything that I run that uses a dialup tcpip connection
blows up once i am connected

Any ideas?

Thanks again for all the help

Barry
I've just realised that you said that you'd reinstalled ME over itself.
This may well be the cause of your later problems, depending on how you did
it.

If you reinstalled ME from the CD - you are in trouble, with 'Version soup'
in IE
If you reinstalled ME from the HD CAB files, then you *may* have got away
with it - it's not a scenario that I've tested in any detail.

To correct the 'Version Soup' problem, there's only one known route -
completely removing IE, and then reinstalling the preferred version.
Instructions for this are here

You are not providing nearly enough information to enable any specific
"solutions".

For starters, what was the original problem that you were attempting to "fix"?

Which found what, exactly?

Using MSIE is an engraved invitation to disaster.

Beyond that, the error message *surely* offered more specific information than
you posted above.

[snip]

*Precisely* the same error message?

What about when you attempt to establish a dial-up connection directly from
the DUN applet?

> I reinstall both.
[snip]

Why? Did you have any specific reason to believe that the existing
installations were damaged?

You seem to be shooting arrows in the dark.

When all else fails, read the instructions?

More seriously, it is pretty clear that the system configuration is now FUBAR,
even if it wasn't so before you started mucking around with it. While it
*may* still be possible to "fix" the system in situ if we knew what was really
wrong with it, at this point it is very likely that your best bet is to simply
wipe the disk and restore the system from a known-good backup that predates
the inception of the trouble. You *do* have a known-good backup that predates
the inception of the trouble, right?

"CounterSpy" is yet another title from the same spamming morons who foisted
