I have a new problem and need your help again. All day when I try to disconnect from the Internet it will not do it. I stay connected. Also, when I go to the Start and try to put puter on Standby or Shut down all I get is the message it is preparing to Standby and that is as far as it goes.

Can you help solve my problem? Thank you.

Hiya

It sounds as if something is trying to connect without you knowing. Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left go to Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list.

Also, go here and download AddAware www.lavasoftusa.com
Install and run, ensuring that Deep Registry Scan is enabled. You can remove all that you find, except any references to Web3000 or new.net. You can post the list here if you're unsure.

Regards

Thank you, Eddie for your reply.

Before I had your reply I just shut down completely for about 4 hours and when I booted up again the problem was gone. However, I intend to save your information just in case...
