What is the full and exact error message that you received when you tried to download Trend Micro PC Cillin ?
What anti-virus and anti-parasites programs are installed, and frequently updated ?
What hardware did you removed ? How ?
I have a Emachines T5026 3.06Ghz, 768mb ram, purchased system from best buy back in march - april. No problems with system until today, I am the primary user that downloads and make changes, my wife basically gets on the internet to shop and that's it.
Today I tried to download the trial version of Trend Micro PC-Cillan 2005. After 5 attempts it kept giving me an error message as to why the program wouldn't connect to the internet. So I removed the hardware from the system and try to use firefox, now firefox is no longer working so I use system restore to back to a save point. After I do this no application on my computer work ie.-after windows boots up normally, I try to open a file and it says "internal error". Any file I try to open such as, mp3,video,word documents. Also IE6,Windows Media Player,almost all programs no longer works, system resore no longer works keeps giving me "internal error" message. The only way I can get to the internet is to open up realplayer and go to the search function and type a web address, this takes me to the msn search page, this is how i get to the internet for help.
Not sure what to do next, I was thinking of using the backup disc that I made when I first purchased my computer, but no really sure how to do that either, but I know I will find some info on the web to help me out. Anybody got any answers, suggestions please let me know, thanks.
