Apparently I stepped in a bunch of crap and I can't seem to do anything about it. It started not being able to download anything which includes attachments. I get the security alert message.

In an effort to download and cleanup things I, copied apps from a networked PC discovered I can run anything either.
What I've tried is to get firefox to see if the security thing affects it too. After copying the install exe I can't run it.

I am an admin and I've tried all the security settings.

I think I'm stuck. Even if I tried to go the hijack route I can't acquire and run any of the typical apps to clean it up.

Im out of ideas. Got any suggestions?

why? it has gone beyond browser issue. Not only can I not download, I can run and install. It also blew away my user profile and who knows what is next. I a little desparate, it's cleary an infection issue and this is problaby where I'll get more eyes and may some help. Delete the other if you want to.

I know you have a tough job keeping this place tidy and i'm sorry for posting in the wrong place earlier. As you noticed I tried to correct that myself. anyway thanks
