Got a trojan virus yesterday; cleaned it with McAfee Stinger; laptop back to normal except now I can't connect to the internet with Internet Explorer 8. Firefox connects fine. I did uninstall then reinstall IE8 but didn't help. I would appreciate any suggestions you have. Thanks.

I'm using Vista Home Premium SP2; DSL connection;

It's fixed. I got a link to

and that took care of it - for anyone who has this problem.
