Finally got that Toshiba satellite laptop repaired (had the owner take it to a Toshiba authorized repair shop, sadly) He brought it back to me because he foolishly put 3 different anti-virus programs on it. After a lot of work getting them all off, I went to download avast and lo and behold, Vista will not connect to the internet. I checked the internet connections and made sure nothing was checked that shouldn't of been checked and all looked good. I did an internet connection trouble shoot and it found no problems. The same lan connection that I am using now for this desktop I am on was the one that I tried on the laptop. The nic card has it's yellow and green lights and I am sending and receiving packets, but when I try to connect, I keep getting that IE page that says it cannot connect. Also, Google chrome would never even come on. When I tried to trouble shoot on the IE page, it could not find a problem either. I ran Rkill and SuperAntiSpyware in safemode with networking, But could not update SAS. I did not try MBAM as I figured if i could not update it, why bother. ( as SAS,Mbam and Rkill are 2 month old programs on a flash drive.) Any other suggestions? It is running Windows Vista Home edition. Thanks in advance.
Funny thing about "The Blues", You can listen to them when your Happy, Sad, Angry, or just plain Blah. It's a non discriminating mood music.
