Help, my daughters computer had two viruses, bagel and sober. They were cleaned with the stinger stand alone program by McAfee. Since then she gets "the page cannot be displayed." Nothing comes up at all no matter what site she trys. We disabled system restore , deleted internet files, ran adaware and spybot before running Stinger. She is running Windows XP. Anyone have any ideas?

since it's my daughters computer I'd have to download it to a floppy so she could try it. She don't have a Windows XP CD. I see one might be needed. Thanks for the info.

What type of recovery setup do you have?

In reply to: The page cannot be displayed

Since you said there is no XP CD, do you have a recovery CD set or the information in a separate partition on the hard drive? If the answer is none of the above, you need to fix that as well.

There is a seperate partition with the information but I'd have no idea how to go about using it.

I recently did a complete restore on an HP computer

with that type of setup. It was very easy to do. I would suggest you check and see if you can either buy or create a recovery CD/DVD set. The partition works as long as the hard drive is functioning. If the hard drive fails, you are SOL.

Not having a Windows XP CD does limit how you can repair the operating system. Have you tried the IEfix utility? You can also go to Microsoft.com and download a new copy of IE 6.0. It gives you the option of doing a complete install or a repair. But be advised, it is a huge download.
