    Hi, I have been having this problem for a day or two now. I cannot access any websites from my home pc. I have run hijack.this, about buster, s&d , adware, CWS shredder. unfortunately I was unable to save my hijack log. I keep getting a different dll everytime. I removed it from every user on the pc and I deleted it manually also. regardless I keep getting the following message when I open IE6( i am running Windows XP home edition, Earthlink cable internet)

    res:// C:\windows\system32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm

    If i cant do anything else i am thinking about reinstalling windows just so i wont get this message is there a way to keep my personal files???
    Any else would be appreciated. THANKS.

    hi, Please provide these:

    I see you have XP Home...
    and Earthlink cable connection.
    Try the reset button on the back or side of the cable modem....you can do this with pc on or off...in most cases.
    Wait for the lights to finish blinking across the modem front and try the connection to IE or other browser.

    You may also do this:

    And, from the Control Panel>internet options>Programs> hit Reset Web Settings

    You can also set the defaults....same start, but under Advanced tab, however doing this will put back a couple of not so good settings in the Security for ActiveX and Scripting...usually it will, might not for XP with SP2 and IE well updated... try the first ones before using that Default unless you are well able to reset what you know is good. The default settings should allow all normal browsing and SP2 should keep anything bad out of the pc....if you do have the SP 2 installed.
