Just recently, my windows search does not work. No error, just nothing. ALso, certain sites no longer load. Such as mcfee support, etc. I ran virus scanners, adware, etc. Comes up clean. I tried to load the windows search engine but I get errors on the install. Any advise... This is driving me crazy.

Initially, my virus and firewall software would not load, that is how I noticed the problem at first. I went through multiple sessions with mcafee support to remove all entries in registry to allow for reinstall. This never worked so I switched to trend product. Not sure how this is related, but happened at same time after I loaded Turbo Tax and It's Deductable. The Its Deductable failed.


System restore did not fix problem.. Same issues came up no matter how far back I went.

I know this sounds like a bunch of unrelated problems, but they all started at the same time.

Thanks for any help.

hey scoter101,

are you sure that you are clean of Malware, you may want to go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

macfee, is not always your friend..... :tazz:
