Thanks for the reply. I have now done all of this and run
the stinger again which found no virus. However, when
trying to download critical updates (not the patches, i
copied thes from another pc) exactly the same thing
happens, the updats download and then freeze on install
and i am unable to view the net.
Is it something I'm doing wrong or do i have to reinstall
