Can't download any programs
thanks BSharpe..I tried what you said..ipcongig/flushdns worked fine but when I tried ipconfig/registerdns I got a message saying "The requested operation requires elevation." The whole thing started when I was opening Skype. I kept getting an error saying I/O disc error. After that I got another message saying " A program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider for Internet Explorer. Internet Explorer has reset this setting to your original search provider,Softonic-Eng 7 Customised Web Search (search.conduit.com). Internet Explorer will now open Search Settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providers."
Everytime I try to install a new search provider it doesn't work. I can access different websites but I cannot download any programs like Skpe, Adobe Reader or Adobe Flash. I keep getting a message saying "Unable to download that particular file. Unable to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later." The dialog box appears but doesn't give any details about the size of the file, time left or speed. Only the Cancel box is highlighted and then a while later I get the above message.
