    Does anyone know of a specific virus or malicious program that blocks
    web access ?
    All other applications work fine, AOL instant messenger, usenet, email
    etc. but web browsers will not work.. they are configured ok.


    Thanks

    Many .. and not just viruses ..

    Update any AV software you have, also look for Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D and any
    number of other good malware applications, and run them all .. But be
    careful, some apparent malware isn't really, it just looks like it is. Read
    the instructions before setting any 'cleaner' type application to delete
    files .. ;)
