Hello,

I joined today because I need help. Starting this morning whenever I open IE (or any other IE type browsers) this is what I see instead of the page indicated in the address bar...

"If you can see this, it means that the installation of the Apache web server software on this system was successful. You may now add content to this directory and replace this page.

So far my Firefox browser is operating.

If anyone has any idea What the... is going on with the IE browser and knows how to fix this problem please help?????? :(

Thanks in advance for any help youcan offer in this matter. :(

Sincerely,

Diana Lee G.[B]

Go to Control Panel>Internet Options and change your home page back to what you had before, Then go to the malware foru to find what changed it, if you beleive that some else didn't change it.

Hello,

Thank you for trying to help, but according to the Tools/Options, etc. Google is still the home page. And according to the address bar I was on Google, but what is *showing* is the page I described. What is showing is that stuff about Apache Server...but supposedly I am on my normal homepage. No matter what page I go to all I see is that Apache page.

If you can see this, it means that the installation of the Apache web server software on this system was successful. You may now add content to this directory and replace this page.

That's all the browser shows.
But thank you for wanting to help. :tazz:

Hi koru999 and welcome to GeeksToGo!


If you are having malware issues, please got to the following site and follow all the instructions carefully.


You Must Read This Before Posting A Hijackthis Log

this will help you clean up to 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.

Thanks,

Hello Excal,

I already did that before I ever posted in here. I downloaded the various suggested programs, one of them I couldn't use because it requires Windows 2000. I tried the rest of them. I did get rid of over 500 megabites in my Temporary Internet Files folder, which was nice but did nothing to solve my problem. None of the other new programs detected anything. I already use Ad Aware. Spywareblaster just keeps new stuff from being installed. No help with what ever is already on my PC causing the trouble. I had Avast Anti-Virus already installed, but the "Scan at Boot up" function has some how been disabled.

Any other suggestions or ideas as to What the... is going on with the IE browser would be appreciated since along with the IE problem I mentioned, when I attempt to access my Homestead account with my Firefox browser a necessary plug-in now fails to download. Since I cannot access the internet w/IE I cannot reinstall IE. The download process requires it be connected to the internet and it uses IE thingies to access the internet and I cannot access the internet with any program that's like an IE program. See?

But thank you for trying to help me. I totally appreciate your efforts. :tazz:
