I am working on an ME machine that had Kazaa and a whole load of other AdWare on it - I suspect also some virii. I cannot get it to connect to the internet on my cable modem to update the protection. I can ping by number, but not by URL. IE bombs. I have removed and reinstalled all network components at least twice - and replaced the Winsock files I knew about. Any ideas for a quick fix? Do NOT want to reformat and do a clean install - program and data replacement would be a REAL issue.
