re Win2K and IE error

by ThumbsUp2 In reply to Windows 2000 Internet exp ...

How long has it been since you visited Windows Update to download critical patches? What service pack are you on?

Also, how long has it been since you did a full system scan for viruses? Do you have anti-virus and anti-spyware software installed? The symptoms you describe sound as if your system isn't "clean".

With Thumsup on this

I reckon you need to drag your computing life into the 21st Century my friend, you can't really expect modern websites to function properly with what cant be any better than IE6 I would guess?
You cannot run later versions of IE on your Win 2K system but you should at least be sure you have it up to date, also I agree with ThumbsUp you do seem to show signs of a virus or spyware.
Come and join us in 2007 alright almost 2008 upgrade to at least XP for goodness sake!!

Try these too...

Do you still see your Control Panel?
How aobut what happen when you press

Windows + R and type regedit
Ctr + Alt + Del

If none of those work, you definitely have 1 of those ridiculous viruses. I've fixed (partially) computers infected w/ viruses that give you those symptoms.
Here is 1 tool that might help you. NAV or McAfee won't see the virus you are having.
