OK suggestions 2 and 3 are highly unlikely since we have changed these anyway.
Firewall issue would only apply if you had changed the settings or a infection caused this.

Open IE and at the top of the page click on Tools

Under Settings what is the slider set at?

I'm going offline for a couple of hours.

I tell you when I'm going offline so you wont keep looking for my post. I don't know how the staff gets their notices, so I thought it would only be right to let you know when I'm not online.

V. Your browser's cookie files might be corrupted. Corrupted cookie
files sometimes stop supporting Yahoo! Mail. Try shutting all of your
browser's windows, and then deleting the cookie files in your browser's
directories. You should delete the cookie files themselves, but you do
not need to delete the folders where they are stored.


Run ATF or TFC which ever one I had you get back when we started.

Also we may need to uninstall your IE and reinstall it if the above doesn't work.

Let's just cut to the chase and totally UNINSTALL IE.

The Yahoo Tech said to do a search for COOKIES which I did, nothing came up in the search window. I left it alone, didn't want to delete something I wasn't suppose to.

I don't know if you remember me stating that went I look for files in the Search window, things come up NOT FOUND and I know that I've seen them in the "C" drive, I have to fiscally go and DELETE them, that's after I've done the uninstall of course.

So it's pretty obvious to me that the Search option is not working properly.

There should not be any corrupt cookies.
There may only be a few on the system because when you ran ATF cleaner we had you clear all of that out.

Cookies should not be a problem.

Cookies are usually located at
C:\Documents and settings\administrator
C:\Documents and settings\your name

You should see a couple folders named "cookies".

OK then go to Control Panel then to Add\RemovePrograms
At the top of the window put a checkmark in the box labeledShow Updates
Now scroll down through the list till you find the IE8 update.
Highlight and then click the Remove button to the right.
Once uninstalled then go back to IE and it should be back to either version 6 or 7.
Try IE and see if now it works. If so then go to windows update and do the IE update again. Try IE again after update and let us know how everything works then.

The top one will or should uninstall the others. If not then uninstall them also.
The top one is the actual IE 8 program update.

Guys:

I think I have either a serious VIRUS or really bad MALWARE because I'm finding that anywhere I have signed in, when I go back to whatever Website I have to login again.

Please see attached my Hijackthis Report, so you can see what's there. :)

We don't use those logs in this forum. They are only for the Malware forum and only the malware techs can assist in the reading of the logs.
As for the previous post unless the programs listed are IE8 then you have no worries. All the message is saying that those programs were installed after IE8 was installed.
None that I see depend on IE8.

rshaffer:

Can you please tell me how to deal with this problem:

I am trying to Change Ownership and Register this PC with DELL. The problem I'm having is:

Every time I go online at Dell.com they want to know who I am, so I'm asked to give this thing called: a Service Tag No, after I give the info required, another page opens and as it's doing it's thing, there is this banner that appears across the top in YELLOW, it says:

"Internet Explorer has blocked this site from using an ActiveX control in an unsafe manner. As a result, this page might not display correctly"

than the page either directs me to another page or, it just goes dead and it tells me that the "Service Tag information could not be found. I must get that information to proceed.

What should I do, because I have to change OWNERSHIP so I can purchase a "Service Warranty" which is outdated.

Thank U !!! :)
