  2. hello to all. I am in the process of attempting to install a cd-burner for a friend. For some weird reason, the pc is not reading the cd burner at all.

  5. I am attempting to diagnose a 2nd computer for a friend. Her computer is littered with spyware and viruses; I am attempting to see if I can connect the 2nd computer online by using the same cable modem I have for my own computer. Is this possible? Because while troubleshooting the 2nd computer (by the way I am using an ethernet connection), I am getting a 169 ip address; release/renew have failed; no Winsock issues, tried Spybot and that is not working. I have even tried going back to the original configuration and it is still not working. Any idea of how I can resolve the 169 ip address if it
  6. Hello how is everyone doing? I need some assistance. I am working on a computer for a client who recently got the downloader.trojan virus. She has her Norton up to date and followed Symantec/Norton's instructions on removing it and she has still not had any luck. Do you have any more suggestions? Also do you think it is possible that it could be malware?? Stephen, IT/Security consultant
