Hi there all
Have two people with Win98 PC's where in Explorer each time you change to a different folder it wants to connect to the net. Both have had viruses removed, one was the Yaha-K and used the Sophos removal tool. Neither of them have Active Desktop on.
On the PC that had the Yaha virus I can't download a web page. DNS I suspect has got screwed up. Have tried repairing IE but to no avail.
Any help would be much appreciated.

To put your mind at rest that there are no left-overs from the viruses lurking in the background and wanting to go off on the net you could give HijackThis (http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/) a run. There is also a StartupList to check what is running at the computer's bootup.
