Microbell, that was one of the first things i tried. The line (rem - windows network blah blah) doesn't show up when you view the autoexec through dos. You get a bunch of other stuff that doesn't appear when you view it through msconfig.
Lexor, i tried that too. Everything in the startup list associated with a virus program was disabled. Afterwards the anti virus program was uninstalled from the system. The problem is there are a few lines in auto exec that run on boot up, but i can only view them through msconfig. Msconfig does not let you delete a line , it only lets you clear a line's contents which just leaves a blank line witha pencil icon. The lines are still triggered when the unit boots up, even though it appears the lines are clear through msconfig (clearing it doesn't erase it).
The only logical thing i can think of is something in the registry. Like i said, editing in dos and editing any other way doesn't show me the lines that i need to edit. Replacing autoexec bat didn't do any good either.
I also want to add that although i've been told REM is for a remark, it appears to me that there is something else going on. When that rem statement was removed from the file, the pc could no longer communicate with it's network card. When that rem was added, the problem was fixed.
The only \"intuitive\" interface is the nipple. After that, it\'s all learned. ;)
