Hello,
The problem i am having is that when I am offline doing whatever,every 3-5 minutes I will get the annoying message that "IE cannot cannot access the webpage I want because the computer is offline" and then it asks me if I want to connect or stay offline. When I'm online everything is fine and dandy. I recently upgraded to IE 6 from 5.5 through the MS website. I am running Win98se, I have tried everything to fix this and its driving me nuts, I checked all my settings, and I cant use the IE fix off the Win98 disc because i dl IE6 from MS and I really dont want to go back to 5.5 . I am running an old computer but it works well for what I want it to do and I really need it to last till the beginning of next year. Someone PLEASE HELP ME!! It pops up on everything, games , using my camera, whatever and it brings everything to a screeching halt, and if youre playing a game and you have to stop 30 times to click stay offline, well I think you get what I mean,any help to put this behind me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!:)

Do this in order:

1) Open Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> delete cookies, delete files (select off-line content), clear history. Then click ok and exit Internet Explorer.

2) Read http://tomcoyote.org/SPYBOT/index1.html then download and run SpyBot. Make sure to get the updates for SpyBot.

3) Update and run your Anti-Virus program (NAV or MacAfee), if you don't have an Anti-Virus program installed on your PC use one of the free ones here:

4) Read http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ then download and install HiJackThis. Open up HiJackThis and click "Scan". After you do so click "Save Log" and save it to your desktop. Exit HiJackThis and open the log you created on your desktop and copy every thing in the log and post it here.
