Hi new guy, you could try deleting any reference to 'adult_chat' from the register using regedit. Be careful not to delete anything else. This should get rid of it. good luck, John.

If you choose to tinker with the register, save a copy of it first, so that if you wreck everything it can be restored.

Try doing a system restore to a time before this happened before you take the drastic step of tinkering with the registry.

use spybot to check for it click here

after its removed.go to controlpanel/system//hardware/devicemanager and click network adapters and uninstall it.restart windows and it will reinstall it again.

you should be able to connect now hopefully.

To clean it out of the registry go to run, typye regedir, in the registry highlight My Computer, click on the edit tab, click find, type adult_chat click find. when it has finished delete only the references to adult_chat click find next & so on until there are no more refs to the program. As Andsome says back up before you start in case you make a mistake

Oops sorry that should read Type regedit

spybot will search the reg for you if you tick settings/file sets/system internals

it will keep a back up for of anything removed and is easily restored if causes problems
