I removed malware/spyware via exterminate-it (after a week of frustration) and my Dell laptop recognizes the wireless connection, but will only allow me on AOL (with limited web access - email and a few sites, but nothing allowed with passwords or downloads). I had been using Internet Explorer, and installed Mozilla to try to generate a connection; both cannot connect. Aol coes up with a prompt with a software problem, and deug shuts it down (I tried re-installing AOL, but that is one of the downloads that can' connect to internet).
The computer is a Dell Inspiron B130 (Windows XP Pro), connecting to a linksys router (other family laptop works fine, had spyware removed as well). Very much a computer novice, so plain language would be appreicated.
Thank you, and, the obligatory, "Help"
