Grinler, thanks yet again. I was running an old PCcillin (2000?) and Trend just stopped supporting it. Their web site said I could upgrade to Trend Internet Security, so I did. Then I found out it was a 30 day eval. Nowhere in the installation was I told it enabled a firewall by default...I should have checked. Anyway, I disabled the firewall, reinstalled the network, and it's working fine.
I checked again with HijackThis. No changes from last time.
Once again, you had the answer. I'm becoming incrementally smarter each time I haunt you for help...
Can you recommend a good registry cleaner to get rid of all the garbage entries that were dumped on me by CoolWebSearch? None of them are harming me, I guess, but probably some are still there taking up space.
Thanks again, Jim
