wininet, (windows internet application programming interface) this is what allows you to access internet resources and without getting too techy on you, it goes along with your FTP (file transfer protocol) and HTTP(hyper text transfer protocol). Did you get a song or something with a virus? AVG may read certain files as threats also and delete them. I am not that familiar with AVG so I can't say for sure what transpired but in any event , did it find a known virus? Normally I would say do a system restore and that would most likely fix it but considering the unknown facts, I wouldn't suggest it. ((Please let me know if there is any viruses at all, if it held them, this may be a clue.)) Does AVG have an undo operation in case something like this happens?
i recent used AVG free edition to scan my cpu when i was done it deleted and held certain files. now i am unable to access the internet (it keeps telling me to reinstall "wininet.net") i also can not use the windows media player, or my lime wire download/player. i dont know what to do at this point because i need to log onto the interent to download anything and i cannot do that. could someone please throw some ideas out there to help me out before i throw out the cpu lol.
