I get this message when I start IE: "Invalid syntax error" . I can't surf on the web. My connection is fine, I can connect to my broker. MSN Messenger warns it has to close at startup. I can't see my history of visited websites. I just deleted all cookies and cleared the cache, restarted , still same problem. I am really not familiar with Win 2000. How do i go where to check the startup programs? How do I go into registry? Pest patrol only flashes 4 harmless pests. I think there were more before actually. Very weird. It's a new sh*t I got on the web I bet!
