    If this is a new problem, can you describe any changes you have made to your computer recently? These might include updating Windows XP to Service Pack 2, or installing a new or updated antivirus/internet security suite. Etc.

    thank you for your reply. Actually , what i meant was not bug but virus.I think my computer is virus infected.When i try to enter the inbox i get the message
    "Internet explorer can not open the Internet site.Operation aborted" I get this mesage even more often whenever i enter internet.I rememebr once i tried to
    download a message from a friend and Hotmwail warned me that it can not download becasue it is virus infected.Nevertheless i downloaded it inadverently and hence i have these problems.Is there any way to remove this virus ? I tried with antivirus progeam but with no success.

    What is your regular antivirus program? Most viruses now try to hide from or disable the most popular ones, so you might try an alternative program or one of the online scanners, such as HouseCall (http://housecall.antivirus.com/). Of course, if that site is blocked, you might need some assistance in reviewing your running processes and killing any and all that appear suspicious. Utilities such as HijackThis can pump out a list for review. These are hard problems to solve on a discussion board. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>

    One other thought: try a Mozilla-based browser such as Firefox. Because it doesn't use Internet Explorer's components, it may bypass the connection problem and let you at least download some tools.
