When I go to control panel and try to double click on System or network, it doesnt work (ie nothing happens). Now I have tried to reinstall windows 95 (my OS) and I cant even find system or Network in my control Panel. What have I done???
And how can I find out my machine name without these things?

Thanks
Sharon:confused:

Hiya and welcome

Did you do a full format or just reinstall the OS on top of your old one? I have found this article, but its about the ones that you're not seeing being there, if that makes sense:

Anyway, if it wasn't a format, have you ran an uptodate Virus checker? If not, try here:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_corp.asp

Also, lets see if you have any spyware. Go here and download AddAware www.lavasoftusa.org
Instal and run it, ensuring that Deep Registry Scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, get RefUpdate and install and Run it.

Network is easily added from the
add/remove program in the control
panel.
However, not getting into system is
a new one on me. When you reinstalled
95 did you say no when it asked you
which file do you want to keep?
Have you checked for a virus?
One place to check is:

http://housecall.antivirus.com/housecall/start_pcc.asp

I would first check for virus.
Then try to reinstall 95 saying no.
If that doesn't do it, I'd install 95 in a
new location.

Hi,
since you fixed my last problem, I thought id try you again!
I am trying to set up a personal web server to teach myself ASP. In doing this, I am getting stuck when it asks me for the machine name. I have put in the name found at the control panel (system folder) but that doesnt seem to be correct (it says my name). Can you help?

thanks

Hiya

You may want to start a new thread, as you said that the last one is finished. Then, when you start it, give some details on which web server it is, and all the problems you're getting.

As for this one, what was the answer? Was it a virus?

Regards

eddie
