I've got a Tiny PC running Windows ME, and using the latest IE to browse the internet. Connection works fine, but everytime you try to view a web page, you get the standard page unavailable, and the url changes, so you get ?%20www.whatever.com

I've tried lots of different ISP's all with the same result. I've tried connecting using my laptop through the same phone line, using the same cables, and it works fine.

I've taken the machine to another house, connected it up, using the same cables, and it works, you can surf happily.

But as soon as the Tiny machine goes back to it's own house, you get this ?%20www on every page you visit.

So, it can't be the modem, because it works elsewhere, can't be the phone line, as my laptop works fine using the same phone line, can't be the cables, I've tested them.

Please help before I go insane!!

Thanks

Hi welshowen,

Sounds strange that it only happens at home.. :confused: :)

Could you please download 'Hijack This!' from http://www.spywareinfo.com/files/hijackthis.zip
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".
When the scan is finished, click "Save Log", and copy and paste it in a reply.

This will give us a rundown of what’s going on in your PC. One of us here will be glad to analyse it for you. Don’t fix anything yourself yet, as a lot of the stuff on that list will be harmless or required.

Cheers

Liam
