I have a Dell XPS M1210 Laptop. It had some spyware on it that I just could not get to go away, so I formatted the drive and reinstalled everything. Now I'm still having problems. I solved some of them be reading your forum but I've still got some problems and I hope you can help.
First off, I'll browse to a web site and se the page coming up, then all f the sudden, it stops and I get a big fat "Page cannot be displayed error" as if I'm not even connected to the internet or the site does not exist. My desktop does not do this, so I don't believe it's my connection.
Second symptom, I have windows update enabled, and it downloads updates, but every time I try and install them, it always says it can't install. Doesn't matter if I try to install while it's running or if I choose the shut down and update option.
Finally, it just runs slow and I'm having problems with various applicaton crashing randomly. Media center won't run at all and I can't connect to shared folders. I'm not sure where to procede from here. Thanks in advance.
