Hi All.

I am encountering the following problems within XP Prof :


IE Properties. / Connections Tab.

These is no option to click on any boxes, except for set new . I am using LAN, and this tab is where I should be able to confugure internet connection. All but the Setup boxes are all greyed out.

IE Properties/Advanced Tab.

Although all the boxes are active and not reyed out, I am totally unable to click on any box to enable or disable. Basicall, cannot click to place tick mark in the box.If I click on the box, it simply highlights the words.

This is no doubt a very dumb question, but where do I locate such things as Proxies, HTTP, TCIP etc etc.. I am thinking that they might be under the connectios tab.

Here's hoping that someone can solve all this for me.

Many thanks

Start > Settings > Network Connections > Double click Local Area Connection. You should find what you need there.

Do you mean HTTP and TCP/IP? Are you the administrator of this PC?

The first step in most troubleshooting is to check for malware. Here's a link to a free, online scan: http://safety.live.com

Hi and thanks for your response. However, I run several anti spyware, malware etc. I have Symantec antivirus (although I seem to have removed part of the programme. It's in my programme files, but when I try to use it, it tells me that the the server is

I also have Ad-Adware, AVG, Super AntiSpyware, CCleaner, ALF-Cleaner along with HJT, RootkitRevealer, Smitfraud, Killbox, Combofix, and I think thast's about it!! So, as you can see, I keep my computer well updated and free of all nasty intrusions.


However, despite all of these defences, I seem more than apt to mess up my computer by uninstalling what shouldn't be and altogether making a complete hash of my more system. What I would really like to know is are all "system32.dll" and other system extensions trojans or whatever. In my C\Windows, I have literally around 87 files or so, all of them start with $NTUninstallKB.............$

Here's hoping you can shed some light on considerable lack of computer knowledge!

Many thanks.

Not a problem. First tho', since there's "issues" with your Norton - I would really recommend doing the free, online scan ( http://safety.live.com ). In the event that something nasty did get on your computer - it would first try to prevent programs from detecting it. I have found this problem quite frequently with McAfee products, and it does occur with the Norton stuff also.

It depends on the location for the file. See this link: http://www.file.net/process/system32.dll.html

From reading it, it's possible that the system32.dll file is a trojan - despite all of your protection. Once again, I'd advise that you run the scan mentioned above.

There is a likelihood that the scan will refuse to work - and if so, that's additional evidence that this is malware.

$NTUninstallKB... are the uninstall feature of each Windows Update. They are harmless.
