I was trying to help a friend clean off some pop ups over the phone. He could surf using IE6 fine but just had some annoying pop ups. In between calls to help him out with each new hijack log he sent he decided to uninstall AOL which he never used and prodigy which he used beore he went to cable. Once he did that now he can no longer display any websites using IE6. It just sits there with the web site found waiting for reply in the status bar. I had him to go to a command window and he could ping things all day like ping www.yahoo.com
worked fine. So I then had him put the IP address of yahoo.com in the address bar of IE6, thinking dns was messed up, and he gets the same waiting for reply. So in testing all of this I asked if his work computer could still worked using he same router the home one that is messed up is plugged in to and it did. I then had him run and ipconfig /all and everything looks normal to me but for one thing. The dns servers are 192 numbers which I've never seen but in talking to some network friends at work they say some routers are set up that way. I never had him do the ipconfig/all on the laptop to see what it said either but i just emailed him to try it. So I've had him to the repair for that local area connection and it goes through the steps and when its done it still doesnt work. Strangely though I couldnt do an ipconfig /release in dos. I forget the exact message but its the standard one when it cant for whatever reason. I've had him uncheck tcp/ip and recheck it. I've had him go in to add and remove programs and uncheck internet explorer and then recheck it and still it doesnt work. I had him plug in my dns numbers that my ipconfig /all shows and it still doesnt work but I forgot to have him switch it back to obtain auto, which i've had fix similar probs before, again. I know in the hijack log im posting it still has a myway search thing(R1). Thats what I was trying to get rid of before he uninstalled aol and prodigy. Again he could surf with IE6 fine while he had this before he uninstalled those 2 apps. So im pretty sure thats not it and now its hard to help him because his work laptop wont let him download hardly anything because they lock him out of most sites. So it took forever for me to get a new log. So to sum it all up again. I can ping fine using www.yahoo.com
. Names or ip numbers wont work in IE6. I've tried everything I can think of other then getting him an IE6 install to try a repair with. Oh and lastly I know there is a gazillion logitech webcam entries that I need to figure out but those were there also when we started this whole thing back when he could surf fine. Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions. Oh and one other thing I havent tried is the winsock fix but I figured since ping in dos was working there was no need but maybe im wrong. Here is a link to the log.
