:thumbsup: I am unable to browse secure websites. I have checked all the normal things, correct time/time zone on the machine. The cipher strength and verison is BLANK when checking under the IE help menu. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling IE7 several times, removed the IE folder from the c drive and all traces of IE from the registry. The program STILL reinstalls with the cipher strength and version BLANK. Im unable to run any online scanners, ie housecall/pandascan I get fake pages cant be displayed or white screens with "done" in the lower left. Im unable to download ad adware because the download window seems almost as if its blocked by a pop up blocker. Its strange!!! Spybot is installed on the machine but I am unable to update it. I get error messages when trying to retrieve the lastest version. I can't download a new version of spybot because downloading seems to be blocked.!! Please assist.. I tried SmitfraudFix ..but it was no help. Please offer any help you may have.

Using your freshly reloaded machine and reading this tutorial would you immunize a usb drive and the clean machine

transfer MBAM and the manual updater to the usb drive

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Do you mean by this you are using a crack (non- original with own licence key)version of XP that will actually not update nor allow itself to be validated ?

Registration is optional, activation and validation are not. IE7 has some issues as it wasn't designed for xp

Hopefully you haven't reinfected your computer so soon after a new install
