Windows 2000 Pro IE 6 problem.

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I am having Windows 2000 Pro SP4 and IE6 working great as always in an old PC of mine which I was supposed to give to one of my relatives. But suddenly, the IE6 stopped functioning. I could luckily find the problem which is, it joins a third forward slash to the URL like this:- www:///.

To make it work properly, I have downloaded the IE6 but it didn’t work. It only works if I manually type the URL correctly. In order to fix the problem, can anyone please help me by telling how can I edit the registry? The OS has a Firefox 7 working very well.

This is a clear indication that you have a trojan horse virus in your machine.

  1. First you should try install ESET NOD32 in your machine and scan thoroughly your computer.
  2. Once done now it is time to remove some registry entries which the virus has corrupted and that is giving you this extra slash error.
  3. Open the Task manager and under the Process tab select winpack and delete this process.
  4. After that go to start menu and in Run type regedit.
  5. Look for the registry in Hkey current user/software/microsoft/windows/currentversion and then in the run.
  6. It will have a registry entry similar to the one you deleted from the task bar.
  7. Winpack REG_SZ C:WindowsSystem32winpack.exe.
  8. Right click on it and click delete.
  9. Save it and restart your computer.
