Rorschach112 sent me here to deal with some problems with my Vista/IE explorer 8 browser. Essentially, he helped me knock out a few viruses, but most likely the virus damaged my IE explorer and left me with the following problems I need solved:
1) Certain websites will not load, such as yahoo! Essentially, I know they work because I can see the website for a brief second, then it flashes away to a "cannot connect page". Sometimes it will continually refresh itself over and over, but still eventually end up as "cannot connect to page".
2) Certain things cannot be downloaded (especially anti-virus software) because it tells me that there is a problem with the "microsoft internet extensions" or that I do not have the authorization to download a file.
3) Some pages will not load java properly and just show the blue links, instead of it lined up the way it should be.
I've had this problem for a month now, and would like some assistance.
