Wininet And WinXP SP2 Heads Up

P: n/a
I messed with Windows XP SP2 and for a while did not get the installation
quite right. It looked for some file (I think a remnant of a Trojan file that
was left on Windows/System32 after Norton had zapped the Trojan) right near
the end of the installation, couldn't find it, aborted and put the system
back the way it found it, or so it said. But it seems it left some if its
security. When I ran my Wininet functions SP2's security blocked the
connections. But my the rollback had removed the dialogs that let me unblock
them. So ... no FTP, just a very long hang, and no error messages, not with
lastddlerror or anything.

After investigating FTPPutFile for an hour or two I reinstalled the Service
Pack. Now everything is fine.

I suppose it's unlikely this will happen to others, but if it happens to you,
maybe this will give you more of a clue about why, than I had.

So, you bought a new laptop, had it three hours, and ruined it?

Didn't I tell you? I dropped that in the parking lot and and it never
worked at all. This installation was on my most modern machine, a 286 that
I was upgrading from DR Dos 2.12.

Lyle's trying to help someone and you are just trolling. It's been a long,
long time since _you_ gave anybody any help.

Oh. For some reason I thought you had sold that 286 to Larry.

I had a 286 once, but I couldn't take the neck-snapping acceleration
and blinding speed, so I had to get rid of it and go back to something
gentler.

You still need to get off your duff and go answer some questions.
