Arrgh! Dunno what happened but I can't connect to the net now and my system crawls now. I didn't add any new programs and I've checked for Sasser but it says the system is not infected. This is what I keep getting at the bottom of the page when I try to open up IE 6.0 (yes, I use & like IE ): res://C:\WINDOWS\system32\shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm WTF does this mean? I've tried rebooting the system and the SBC DSL modem to no avail. Any help is appreciated. (I'm currently typing/accessing the 'net from work.) Forgot to add: OS: WinXP Pro Sytem: E-machine (yeah it's a system but it works) eMonster 500 Pentium III 500mhz Mem: 512mb Firewall: ZoneAlarm (I've disabled it -- doesn't help) AV: Norton AV Let me know if you guys need any more info on this system.
