One of my posts, which asks readers how I can repair IE 6 without a Windows XP CD, has gotten a large amount of comments (for me, at least). In particular, Keith’s comment suggests using WinSock XP Fix:
I have used it after fixing several machines with spyware installed. 90% success rate at re-establishing internet connectivity.
He also lists some programs he uses to clean spyware off systems. Thanks Keith!
