I was helping out a friend remove Kazaa from her PC....funny how all tales of woe involve Kazaa.
I removed Kazaa with kazaabegone. Then I ran AdAware 6.0 with the latest reference file. I then installed Kazaa Lite K++(my friend has teenagers.....so Kazaa Lite was a neccessary evil at this point).
I archived all of the 400 files found by AdAware just in case I needed one of them....
After I restarted the machine, it was working much faster, however, I would get a dns error saying that a web page wasn't found. The PC is on dial-up, I was connected. But, here's the thing...I could ping public IP addys and I could access web pages if I typed in http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
where the x's are the IP addy.
The DUN & TCP/IP settings are the same as they were before I got to the machine (use the DNS provided by the Internet Provider). If I type in the IP addy of a public DNS server, I have the same problem.
I even tried restoring the archive from AdAware with no luck....did removing Kazaa with Kazaabegone screw something up? Any ideas as to what I can do next?
Any help would be greatly appreciated
