    Unable to download EXE. Files (XP Home)

    Recently installed Lavasoft's AD-AwARE and SpyBot to get rid of spyware. After cleaned I continue to get popup's that are unsuitable for viewing. I also got a "Trojen Horse" virus which I cleaned using McAfee but it keeps coming back.

    I cannot update my antivirus or upgrade Windows to SP2. In fact I can't download any executable file. The messages read "website not ready" or unable to connect. I can access all websites but these messages appear whenever I try to download an executable file.

    Is the anti spyware causing these problems? I tried uninstalling but it did not work.

    Is the virus causing these problems? I tried cleaning in the Safe mode and it seemed to disappear but I still could not update anything.

    Can anyone help???

    Try running an online security check for virus and trojans.

    A good one is SYMANTEC SECURITY

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
