Hello! Just looking for a computer genius to help with a problem! My computer was recently infected with Antivirus PRO 2009. I removed the virus using Malwarebyte's AntiMalware, and everything is back to normal except that Internet Explorer does not work. Netscape works, so I know it's not a problem with the wireless connectivity. I'm not crazy about using Netscape, though, as some pages don't load correctly. I thought maybe some files for Explorer were accidentally deleted when I removed the virus, so I used Netscape to re-download Explorer (8). It still does not work. The same screen comes up as when there's no internet connection, the "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" page. Anybody know how I can fix this??? Thanks so much in advance.

Is your firewall blocking it? try disabling your firewall.
