All of a sudden our computer became very bothered by spyware. It is Windows ME, and I have IE 6.
I downladed Spybot S&D and used it to remove several things from our computer.
Unfortunately, since doing this, Internet explorer no longer works. Many things are gotten rid of but we seem to still be infected by vX2, and the internet toolbar keeps getting hijacked to allaboutsearching.com whenever I try to open internet explorer.
Nothing ever loads (no page) or else it is VEEEEEEEERY slow. (And never loads)
The little numbers at the bottom of the page (I am not too technical. Are those IP numbers or something? Things similar to 123.45.6778, but that is made up) anyway, those numbers keep changing but the page just stays white, or at best an error message can't load page) comes up for any page entered.
I cannot download hijack this or that vx2 removal thing because of course, my ie won't connect to the internet.
Is there anything I can do? What can I do? I have Comcast as an ISP, in case that matters through a cable modem.
I hope all of this information helps, and there is something that I can do, or somehow I can solve this.
Someone from comcast tech support had me try to "fix"/reinstall internet explorer, but that didn't work. Microsoft only offers support for $35, so I would love it if someone could help me out. (Especially since I wonder if microsoft would help or not)
Thanks, ahead, for any and all help you can give me.
