    Start, run, type msconfig and hit enter, go to the startup tab. Is Newdot.net there?

    You also might post a hijack this log.

    Yes, it's there. I unchecked the box. Also my Internet Connection is working. I fixed it by clicking on the detect network settings button on the page cannot be found screen in Internet Explorer.

    Ok, if it happens to be in your add/remove programs, I'd try uninstalling it that way. I'm sure there are some other leftovers that go with it.

    Did you uncheck it, as stated in post 3, or did you physically REMOVE it? There is a difference.

    I removed it from the Add/Remove programs list but I still have the error message when I go to Start, Run then I type in msconfig and I go to the Startup Tab.

    So, the error message is gone? Do you still have a connection problem?

    It's gone because I unchecked the box in msconfig. And Yes I have Internet Connection.

    Yes, I'd just want to ask one more thing, why did the Newdot.net change my Internet Explorer settings and why did I used to get error messages?

    It's an internet hijacker - an add-on program that has been distributed by KaZaA, Go!Zilla, Babylon, Cydoor, Gdivx, and WebShots in the past. Its purpose is to enable computers to access the website names and email addresses that are New.net has launched.

    Although Newdotnet does not claim to be spyware, it has been associated with computer instability in certain situations.
