    :) Hi everyone, I need help this time for my sister's computer. She has a Gateway AMD 950
    80 g hd with 712 installed ram. She was running Windows ME and bought a new Windows XP install CD not the upgrade. She had downloaded a lot of updates from Windows Update but needs more and she can't access the site. Error THIS PAGE CANNOT BE DISPLAYED. Also, she is trying to download Belarc and the stack overflow or line 33 and 34 shows up. When she tried to download weather watcher she got this is not a valid win32 file. Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated.

    Did she upgrade to XP or did it get a complete wipe and install of XP? If an upgrade you may want to try backing up the data wiping it and starting fresh.

    I would run antivirus, ad-ware spyware and all the rest on this PC sounds like she may be infected with something since she is having so many problems.
