I have downloaded it but do not know what to do with it now as it will not open?

have you managed to unzip it?
if not, you'll have to get winzip
click here

yes I have unzipped it. It is a rar file. When zipped it has a dll extension and I do not know what to open it with

rar file? is that the extension?

anyway, it needs to be copied to
C:\WINDOWS\system32

so that you get

C:\WINDOWS\system32\wininet.dll

just double check that the file definitely isn't there already!!

sorry...
which operation system?
that'll make a difference to where it goes
the above assumes XP

Yes it is XP and it has resolved this problem - many thanks. I now have a Desktop infection problem which I have posted for help Warnhp HTML
