Internet Explorer-adware

by dondim / March 29, 2004 5:02 AM PST

My daughter deleted adware in Internet Explorer and it cause her problem downloading on line. Is it possible to obtain adware seperately as she can not download IE6. Is there anyway of obtaining a copy of IE6 that I could download and send to her? She has a HP 750N and did not receive a copy of Windows XP.

Thanks Don

More common? LSPFIX

Look up LSPFIX and send that. Some spyware will cause some minor damage in it's install. So use LSPFIX to fix it.

Not very big and installing IE will not fix the LSP.

Assuming XP came with your HP system... You paid for a license copy of XP. Contact HP's technical support, they should be able to send you a copy of XP on CD-ROM. BEWARE, typically the OEM's CD will convert your system back to its factory state and your data will possible be lost.

I serviced a HP Pavilion 754n recently and it let me create a set of 8# Recovery Disks.

Check the instructions for your daughter's HP and see if this is possible.
