since it is virus related, try this tool. it works wonders.
Let me know what it deletes. Don't worry it will only
delete malicious software.
Yea, the title is vauge but the story is not.
About two weeks ago our computer got hit by a nasty virus. We still don't know how but that's besides the point. After finally getting into a workable safemode (homemade computer, didn't exactly work like our previous one), I was able to get rid of the darn virus along with a lot of other important files that made the pc useless.
My husband and his IT coworker tried to fix that and messed it up even more. Husband lost alot of his stuff he had saved, before you say anything, the guy harps on me all the time to backup to the external hard drive and the one time he should do it, he didn't.
So, after getting nowhere, they decide to wipe the hard drive clean and start all over.
After I go on and install a few things I use to protect the computer, he tells me they didn't install service pack 3. So I did it for him. One question, Should this have been done before any software was ever put back on the pc?
On to the point of my post, So I install IE8, cause you know I keep getting messages on the websites i visit that their site won't work without it. I also install Mozilla Firefox because I know there are certain websites I can not view with IE.
Since I can not look at the websites in either one, I downloaded all the browsers available. Installed each one and tried to use each one.
The websites I am trying to view are yahoo, facebook, local newspapers, my bank, bills I pay and others. I realize there is an issue with facebbok, but I don't know how to get around it and I don't know why the other websites won't work.
I followed acouple suggestions on this site, going into tools and making sure settings were right. reinstalling IE8 over itself, and the last was to uninstall IE8, adobe and java and reinstall.
Did all those and it still doesn't work.
Can anyone out there help me. I'd much appreciate it.
XP operating system. Since it's a "homemade" computer, that's about all I can tell you.
