I have never posted anywhere before, but I have found this website helpful with my current issue. I was infected by MS Anti-Spyware 2009 from a lovely YouTube video. I have run the malware fix posted on this website, deleted all registry files that were related, run spybot, Macafee Stinger, AVG Anti Virus, and Microsoft Windows Malicious Software removal tool - and all of them removed a thing or 3, but it would not run StopZilla. The MS Anti-Spyware 2009 is gone now, and my computer is mostly restored; however, my IE browser no longer works properly.
When I open it up, it allows me to go to ONE page of my choice. Then if I click a link, it says that the link is not valid. Then, if I copy and paste the link in the non-working page, close out IE software, open it up and paste the same link that would not work before into a freshly opened browser, I can get that page to load. (Needless to say, downloading all of these apps was a long process...) I ran Trend Micro HighJackThis and found a few things too, but in the end, it did not fix the issue. I removed and re-loaded IE, but it does not let me get to pages at all if it is like one with fix software - so I have to use another computer to burn the file and run it. I can't for the life of me figure this out..
Anyone have help?
