may one ask what the infection on it was and from where obtained?
one assumes you reformatted and reinstalled the OS from a known clean cd with licence key ?and you are aware that the key can only be used on the same ONE computer ?
I removed all 3rd party software and p2p software,
thanks a lot for me deleting stuff i wanted
you are of course aware that P2P programs are NOT an essential part OF a windows installation and ARE a means OF infections getting TO a computer?
does the computer actually HAVE the browsers installed and if so do they attempt to load?
have you reconfigured the firewall?
and what antivirus program if any is on there now?
