I Was Asked To Fix A Friend's Computer A Couple Of Days Ago, And I Managed To Remove A Tonn Of Spyware From Her System. But About Two Months Ago Her Internet Explorer Stopped Working. She Is Now Upgrading To Broadband, But The Kit Doesnt Arrive For Another Two Weeks, And She Is Still On Dial Up. She Wants To Go On MSN Messenger & Go Onto Her WEbsites, But IE Comes Up "Page Cannot Be Found", MSN Messenger Cant Sign In & Even The Ping Command Cannot Ping www.google.com Or Any DNS Name. All The IP Settings Are Correct, But It Still Doesnt Connect. The Only Address I Could Get The Computer To Ping Was The DNS Server Of The ISP.

If the ISP jumped the gun they may have cancelled your dialup service. first you should call the ISP, second most HSI have survivor dialup for when the HSI is down. Contact you HSI provider and see if they will let you sign on that way until the DSL is online.

Or, there is a Winsock 2 corruption, that is why you cannot get online.

See the article HERE.

If this is the problem, there are now utilities available for download on the internet that might effect a repair, such as this one HERE.

Good luck.

I thought that to at first, but he said he could ping the ISP. It sure can't hurt.
