this is my first post so please be gentle! I can log onto my computer and things are fairly normal if a little slow but when I open up my browser (internet explorer) I cannot get beyond my homepage (which is google) when I try and search. However, I have been able to get to another page via a favourite link (Times online!) and can navigate around this site if a little slow. I've tried to type in a link for other websites and it simply says waiting for... and does not ever get to that link.
This problem started when I got some sort of download to my computer which I didn't ask for which listed virus's that were apparently on my computer (looked like macafee but don't think it was).
My Macaffee virus software is up to date although it gives me the message that my computer is fully protected. Trying to click on fix it links doesn't work.
I have downloaded spyware doctor but this hasn't fixed problem (although browser did allow me to go to site and download it?!)
Any help would really be appreciated. Afraid I'll need step by step guidance as I'm not too technically gifted.
Thanks in advance!
