I had several malware infection on my machine, and a HJT Senior classman helped me to remove them. Following disinfecting of the machine, my Internet Explorer (6) will not fire up. I found another IE application in a strange folder that I think the malware was using to access the internet. I have tried to uninstall the current IE, and then re=-install it, and I have tried to install IE7 and IE8 with no luck. Any guidance on how to get control of my IE would help.

Thx, Pat

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
