to remove the program when a constant stream of pop-ups reading
"Filter Error - Please reinstall your Internet filter".
I can't get rid of the error message. I have searched the registry,
looked over all the .ini files I could find and still the error box pops
up whenever anything tries to access the Internet.
Oh yeah, no Internet either. the error message apparently blocks all access.
Re: Filter Error
You may have something running on the machine. You should use the tools
in the link like Process Explorer and other tools in the link to find it
, if possible. PE allows you to look at all running processes and look
inside a running process to look at the hidden processes that are using
them, if this is malware.
I would also look at the Event Logs on XP and see if any error messages
are showing there.
If this is malware, then it can hose the TCP/IP Stack preventing a
connection with the Internet.
You should try to secure/harden the XP O/S to attack as much as possible
