So the virus was gone and everything was peachy-keen, or so I thought. When I tried to go online using IE this message pops up: IE cannot display the webpage. Most Likely causes- you are not connected to the internet, etc... I tried to refresh just in case it was a glitch but that did not help. I thought maybe it was my firewall, but turns out my firewall was not even turned on so that was out too. I checked my internet connections and it said I was connected. Since it was connected, I wanted to see if I could use my laptop. Lo and behold my laptop works fine. That is how I am typing this right now.
My laptop is working on a wireless network. I thought perhaps I need to reset my cable internet, router and computer connections. So one by one I shut them down and powered them back up. Still no progress. I decided to use Winsockfix XP and burned it onto a disc from my laptop and inserted it into my desktop. After it said it fixed the problem I restarted the computer to find that nothing changed. I clicked on Run in my computer and typed "netsh winsock reset" this still did nothing. I did some other simpler things but still no change.
I am about to throw my computer out the window because I can't take it anymore. Please someone help me with this problem.
