Hi guys!
I received great help from this forum last time my computer crashed so I am trying again!

I got a virus that redirected me every time I went on the internet.
The virus came up as WIN32/nuqel
I had to go into the registry to get rid of this thing and now it is gone.
I cannot however get onto the interneet.
Skype works but IE will not connect.
I have run a registry cleaner and ISPfix but to no avail.
Any takers?

Thank you very much!

Espus,
I just ran into this problem after removing a virus off of my dad's computer. He was able to connect to the internet with PalTalk, but not IE. What happened is your profile got corrupted. My step-mom's profile was just fine; she was able to use IE. What I had to do was create another profile and copy the contents of his old profile over to the new one. Hopefully this helps.
