Hey everyone! I am new to this forum and I hope someone can offer assistance before I throw my computer out the window.
Dell Deminsion 8200 with XP my connection is through a cable modem.
To start off, the problem initially began about 3 weeks ago. There is a shortcut set up to access the internet. This feature directly allows you to automatically sign into your hotmail account. Normally this is a very fast process, but then it was taking several attempts and would untimately fail stating a possible problem at microsoft or my connection. So I call up the technical support and perform all these internet tests with the tech. No problem on that side b/c the internet connection is fine. Restarted my computer and things worked fine for a few days. This cycle went on for several days. Now I cannot access my hotmail account at all from home and the error message states wrong username or password. Messenger is also not working with similar errors.
Any web site that has to do with passwords does not work. (Bank account online)
My mouse is also shadowing. (I made that term up it is slow to respond and can be corrected if I restart the computer)
The response for non-internet working is also extremely slow. Things seem to lock up more easily too. I ran the Norton antivirus 2003 edition and it came up with an internal error with the software itself. I was instructed to uninstall and reinstall the software. I have uninstalled it but after reading the discussion board, it sounds like there might be some properties still on the computer related to Syntax or Norton.
Also anytime I try to access help pages through microsoft or dell an error message pops up. This one deals with the address being wrong.
I am not a computer wizz. I think of them like mechanics, invaluble in times of need. Any help from anyone would be great!
Thanks Kim

Hi Kim,
Welcome to TSG.

A lot of things have happened in the last 3 weeks, as you probably know...
I would like to suggest Housecall for a free online virus scan since your Norton is acting up.

Then go get hijackthis and post a log so some of the experts here can have a look.

I tried housecall, but when I went to download the installation process, the page loaded but said there were errors on the page and nothing happened.

I checked out how to fix the problme at housecall and the only suggestion that applied was to login, but when I tried that I received this error page. This is the exact one that occurs with hotmail or any other login web page
Internet Explorer returns an error on the address you just entered or clicked

This could be caused by:
The Web site you are looking for may be temporarily unavailable.

Your Web connection was temporarily slow because of the traffic.

You may have entered the address incorrectly.

The site may no longer exist.

You can either click Go to try the web address again, or
correct the address if it is misspelled and then click Go:

Or, enter the CommonName you wish to visit and click Go:

Other possible causes are:
Some sites require 128-bit connection security. Click the Help
menu and then click About Internet Explorer to determine
what strength security you have installed.
If you are trying to reach a secure site, make sure your Security
settings can support it. Click the Tools menu, and then click
Internet Options. On the Advanced tab, scroll to the Security
section and check settings for SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, PCT 1.0.

Should I just go to Hijack instead?
The error from Norton was numbered 3002 and 1530 if that helps at all.
Thanks Kimberly
