Last week I downloaded Internet Explorer 7 from the Microsoft website. Since then I get multiple internet explorer crashes, a pop-up window every time I switch pages/site for "mrfindalot.com", my windows firewall is disabled and I can't turn it back on, and my add-ons have been disabled. I downloaded: Spybot, Adaware, XoftSpy, Windows Defender and Windows Live One Care. Every time a scan is run I am deleting up to 80 critical issues.
I can't find the website I read about someone with similar problems after downloading IE7. I have seen the names smitfraud and others trying to remove these critical issues. In searching for Mr. Findalot, Spybot and Adaware as well as Win Def, have found it but claim it's low risk. It's driving me crazier than I already am. What will thoroughly remove these things from the computer???
Thanks for any help you can offer.
