    I posted this on the other forum but it kinda fits in both catagories...

    Ok, I got some sort of evil cookie/virus. I deleted it but not before it corrupted some files on my computer (in theory). For the past several weeks I have been getting a DNS error, but my network connection is fine. I replaced the Wsock2 registry key and I no longer am recieving the DNS error but now I'm getting HTTP 404 for every web page I try to access. I ran SFC and replaced a bunch of corrupt files. I even erased and reinstalled all of my network connections but I still get the error. PLEASE HELP!! I already have spent too much of my spring break on this thing...

    I ran Spyware and Adaware as well as several other very current anti-virus software and my computer is now clean. I can't run Hijack because it says that I am missing msvbvm60.dll. Is this an IE component? I couldn't extract it from Windows 98, could someone tell me where it is from if they know?
