Ok finally got my pc wiped, got hard drive re formatted etc
Extra 512 ram, (total 640)
Got windows XP prof (not legit copy) put on all worked great
Loaded office 2000, photoshop, usb hub, printer,
All still good
Got broadband modem and software in post
Loaded that all up, seemed ok, went online (unprotected) not big or clever I know,
But now after a few mins online, not sure what prompts it I get an error up
“Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Report send / don’t send.”
So I went online at work and searched for a bit, found loads of stuff, got a bit lost, but seemed ok,
First I tried downloading the 64bit one on here ...
But it would install, it said it was not a valid 32 bit program,
So I downloaded adaware to see if I have bugs etc, as this is supposed to happen,
But I run that and after a bit of searching, and totting up some ‘new components’ it hangs,
When u close it says
“Ad-aware.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Report send / don’t send.”
Its obviously an XP bug I guess ? or what can anyone guide me ?
I downloaded the messenger control for adaware to shut my back door as it were through windows messnger
I went into internet options, disabled 3rd party browser thingy
All based on advice off the net
The broadband instructions said I need xp service pack 1 or my connection maybe slow
Can I get this ? how do I know if ive got it already ?
When typing this on word, I was also connected to the net, then bam! Computer shutdown and restarted ?! help !
