boopme gave me a process to do and we have went over them and no fix.
"OK I really don't think there is any more malware in here but. I think it importantant to get this service running. Please ask this in the XP forum. Then we'll see if we have to come back here.
Windows Firewall settings cannot be displayed becaue the associated service is not running. Do you want to start Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service? I click yes. Starting the Windows Firewall/ Internet SHaring service. Windows cannot started the Windows Firewall/Internet Conection Sharing service"
Ok my problem is I cannot install new programs that need to connect to the internet because the program can't access the internet. Already installed programs cannot update because they can't connect to the internet. IE works fine for me, I can go to every page I've tried. Firefox works fine for me, I can go to every page that I've tried. I have uninstalled Zonealarm (which the uninstaller said it was uninstalled) I have also uninstalled Avast (which the uninstaller said it was uninstalled also) Well I just recently looked in my Add or Remove programs and ZoneAlarm is still there. When I go to uninstall it, I get the following error "Validation failed for C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\VSINIT.dll. You probably are missing a necessry root certificate." Anyhow the main problem I have is the programs not able to connect to the internet.
Edit: Ok. I tried to update a different type of program which is DivX. It updated and installed fine.
