    Hi guys!

    Really need help here. This problem is killing me.

    I keep having an "Access Denied" window appear whenever I got to some websites, in particular Yahoo mail. After I key in my username and password, it carries on to load, but stops suddenly and pops up a Error window that says "Line 115: Error" and "Error: Access is Denied" and asks me whether I wish to debug or not. When I click no, it just stops loading.

    I was fine a few days ago but now it keeps giving me this problem. I can't access my mail and worse, it happens when I enter my school's site as well. I have been using my friend's PC to submit my school work.

    Anyon have any ideas?

    Run the .reg I've attached, it will reset your IE.
    What it does is wipe all the custom security off via the registry. Should resolve your issue. Let me know...

    BTW - rename the file I've attached to .reg --- I had to upload it as a text file.

    Welcome daemontan. :) See if this does anything>>

    Open IE/Tools/Advanced/. Untick 'disable script debugging'.

    No help, guys.
    It's still the same.
    Now I can't even use the Microsoft Windows update site to get my fixes.
    It just says, "error on page" and does not go further than the Checking for latest updates page.
    :cry:

    Any way to reinstall ie6 on winxp?

    open the hosts file in notepad see if it has any listing for the microsoft windows update site and remove it as viruses place it there to prevent you from fixing up ur pc

    its located in : C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc
    also use firefox for anything other than windows update

    seems like u have viruses as well as spyware, go download avg antivirus, (if u already have norton its probably been killed by the viruses its worthless) free.grisoft.com and run a full computer scan after changing the setting to scan all files

    Test Center-> Tests->Complete Test Settings->Scan All Files
    as some viruses change their file names to evade antivirus

    You can also run a spyware cleaner (along with AVG that mafia recommened) like Spybot S&D and/or Ad-Aware.

    Please post a hijack this log for us.

    How to reinstall IE:

    Make sure you can see all files (ie - in folder options, make sure the option is set to show all files including hidden)

    Run a search in your Windows folder for ie.inf

    Right click, 'install'
