I go into internet explorer options to delete files and browsing history. The files folder is empty and the cookies folder does not show anything but as so as I put a letter in the address field all these addresses pop up. I have tried to install I.E. 7.0 to get rid of these addresses and I get an error message indicating 7.0 had a problem installing.

What do I do to get rid of these phantom files or addresses and be able to install I.E. 7.0? I have also ran my symantec corporate addition and no comes back no virus found.

First try deleting saved form data in IE, this works
than if you really wanna get rid of everything, than download Your Uninstaller and uninstall IE and install IE7.

firefox is just a way around a problem it won't fix it in long term.
please procede to the malware forum to get some advice on how to remove the malware that you currently have installed on your computer.

Please 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.

Good luck :whistling:
James

P.S. If i'm understanding you correctly its not IE 7.0 at fault here.
