Having problems with your Dell XPS 420 PC Desktop ?

Unable to get updates with any applications

\015 Can't receive windows updates either. At the moment I have no virus programs because apparently they were preventing Outlook from performing correctly. It's things like this that make you think I should have gotten a Mac. Apparently there's a problem with the applications connecting with my ISP, but when I contacted them, they said it's your computer. My warranty with Dell Service on Call ran out three days ago and guess what, that's exactly when the problems started to happen. Unbelievable.\015

Answers :

I used a program called Trojan Remover. That's actually the name of it. It's seems to be a simple application, but the design of it must be pretty sophisticated. It turned out that there were rogue users messing with my DNS server, whatever that means. That's why I wasn't getting updates on anything. I rebooted the computer and the thing worked like the first day I got it. I mean this is not exactly a crappy old computer. I've updated the processor and I have 8GB of ram. So it's competes with today's computers, but the thing was running like an old Commodore. Everything seems to be working now. Plus there were viruses that disabled by Anti-Virus program from working properly. I was this close to re-installing windows, but I went to Major Geeks; those guys are pretty smart over there and they recommneded this program. It works, it really does.
