Yes other sites can be viewed. Banking site is HTTPS. Other sites ie: home shopping, I can log in but can't buy anything just browse. Cookies are enabled. This started in late december. I am not sure about the malware.... How do I check for that?

there are malware scans that you can run to check for malware, but a lot of those thouse thorough in some areas do have wholes in them. if you do suspect malware, like strange popups, or some other reason go to the malware forum and post there. For my next attemp at your problem, i am going to suggest you download the patches for IE6, even if this does not fix your problem it is good to have them. IE6 has more wholes in in then a piece of swiss cheese. :tazz: please post back if this solves your problem.

Hi kathyscott,
I noticed in a past post you indicated that you had turned off you firewall, some times they cause problem however are very rare expecially the xp firewall. So to prevent future infection i strongly recommend that you enable your firewall so that you will have another line of defense. You can do so by going
start->controle panel->Secuity center-> firewall and then enable it!
thanx
James Sager
