    Guys,
    I've acquired a Compaq laptop with Windows XP in which I then put in a Netgear wireless card to connect to my wireless home network. Networking is working fine in that I can map shared drives from other computers on the network. What is not working is Internet browsing (IE & Firefox). Browser gives the error: Connection refused for site (whatever the website address). I've checked the options on the Browsers and they're exactly the same as other computers on the network. I can run a VPN client and connect to my company's network so this is not a problem with internet connectivity but only with the browsers. I'll be very grateful if some one could give me any pointers as to what could be the problem here.

    Regards

    On the system you are currently using i want you to download this file and load it onto a floppy-- http://www.spyware911.net/downloads/HijackThis.exe

    Then insert in the problematic system.
    Create a folder on your hard drive somewhere like in "My Documents" and name it Hijackthis
    Doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log, load it in Notepad, and copy its contents to the floppy then go to the working system and copy/paste the logfile here.
