Why is my dell dimension 3000 with xp keeps getting file download- security warning for everything I try to open? Even opening the internet icon on my computer


I see XP, sorry ok here's your fix...
Because a firewall restricts communication between your computer and the Internet, you might need to adjust settings for some programs that prefer an open connection. These adjustments are called "exceptions." To learn more about exceptions, see the Using the Exceptions Tab section of this article.
Windows Firewall now has three settings: On, On with no exceptions, and Off.
On: Windows Firewall is turned on by default, and normally you should leave it that way. When you choose this setting, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, except for requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab.
On with no exceptions: When you select the Don't allow exceptions check box, Windows Firewall blocks all unsolicited requests to connect to your computer, including requests to programs or services selected on the Exceptions tab. Use this setting when you need maximum protection for your computer, such as when you connect to a public network in a hotel or airport, or when a dangerous virus or worm is spreading over the Internet.
Tip There is no need to keep Don't allow exceptions selected all the time, because when it is, some of your programs might not work correctly, and the following services are blocked from accepting unsolicited requests:
• File and Printer Sharing
• Remote Assistance and Remote Desktop
• Discovery of network devices
• Preconfigured programs and services on the exceptions list
• Additional items that you've added to the exceptions list

Note When you select Don't allow exceptions, you can still send and receive e-mail, use an instant messaging program, or view most Web pages.
Off: This setting turns Windows Firewall off. When you choose this setting, your computer is much more vulnerable to harm from unknown intruders or viruses from the Internet. This setting should only be used by advanced users for computer administration purposes, or if your computer is protected by another firewall.
To adjust Windows Firewall settings
1.
Click Start and then click Control Panel.
2.
In the control panel, click Windows Security Center.
3.
Click Windows Firewall.
4.
In the General Tab make your selection.

Windows Firewall General tab
Note Settings that you create when your computer is joined to a domain are stored separately from those created when your computer is not joined to a domain. These separate groups of settings are called profiles.

If the above does not work you may also need to adjust your internet security settings. You can do this by the following:
Open up your internet explorer
click on tools
select internet options
click on the security tab
change the sttings to medium, rather than what they are. Click apply and ok. Exit your browser and restart it to try to connect again. Let me know if the above options do not work and we will try the next step. Hope this helps!

More than likely the virus has edited settings in your registry, sinply removing the virus will not replace these settings. Try using a restore pointn prior to when you got the virus.

Missing and unrecoverable INTERNET OPTIONS in XP Windows 2000


If you still have the IE8 Beta 2 setup progrram on your system, run it and select the 'Repair installation' option if presented. If that's not there, you could try to reinstall over the existing installation, or you could go to Control Panel -> Programs and Features. Select Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 and uninstall it. Reboot the computer and check to see if your previous version of IE is working properly.

If that works and you still want IE8, download the latest version from the MS site and install, since Beta 2 is old. I am currently using RC1 but the RTM version may be available by now.

Let me know if this doesn't work and we can look at other options.

Check your security settings in the Internet Options control panel, and your privacy settings also. If you are newly using IE 7, the default settings will prevent you from downloading and installing. In IE7 click the tool menu and then click internet options, or you can click start > control panel > internet options.
You might also want to check your firewall settings. Also located in the control panel.
