I went to a library, and then went to Youtube to get the links again, but rather than the XP Internet Security 2012 tutorial, I watched the XP Security 2012 tutorial at .
The good news is that I'm no longer being hounded by constant pop-ups that block me from using any of my programs. The bad news is now I can't get online. It says that I have no IP address assigned.
I know that in this particular tutorial, the main difference seemed to be the usage of Hijack This, so I'm wondering if Hijack This messed up something when I had it fix ctfmon.exe. Or maybe RogueKiller isn't a good program (I've not been able to find much written about it.)
For the record, I have the Windows XP Media Center edition, and that while I used to use a dial-up connection I now use a DSL connection. Not sure if that helps or not.
While I'm not in a crisis at the moment, I am hoping to resolve this pretty quickly (though at least the computer seems to be running perfectly normally with the exception of not being able to get online.) Have I permanently sundered my Internet usage, or is there something I might be able to do to fix this?
