:thumbsup: Well, I did something very stupid! To make a long story short, I was trying to download an OCR program, and suddenly the screen start flashing and I noticed several odd files being downloaded. I stopped the download, but then was prompt to download some antivirus software “Spyware Protect 2009”, and I then started to get display messages that my computer is infected with the Win32/Nuquel.E Trojan. I did not purchased the software, but ran my copy of Norton (which did not see anything). So I finally I went on line, searching for a way to get rid of this trojan and finally downloaded Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. It was able to detect 5 to 10 trojans, and deleted them. Anyway, after several virus and spyware scans to determine my computer is clean, I now cannot get on the Internet. I am using Internet Explorer 6. I have wireless connection, and the connection looks good. I even tried my other computer and was able to gain Internet access. I also use Firefox to view my PHP files (my computer is set up as a server for web development), and it stop working as well. I guess the trojan screwed up my registry, but I can’t locate the problem. I even tried a repair with my windows XP CD, and still no luck!!!

Everything else looks good but my ability to get on the Internet. I can really kick myself in the butt for this.

Your help is GREATLY appreciated!!!!
