BY the looks of the infections found. im using this info from experiance and not random knowledge. although i am not an expert.
IT appears you downloaded MyWebSearch Toolbar? This Toolbar is usually bad. Aswell as its 'Followers' Such as kiwee toolbar, HotBar, or any other rubbish for MSN.
Cant remember the name of it, but im sure there is a host file cleaner / resetter. although i dont know its name or how to use it...
Basically whats the matter with the PC now is that Your pc is just about clean from infections, although you are infected with some sort of Browser Hijack which is preventing you from accessing certain sites, eg, try AVG website and you will find that is redirected somewhere nasty.
Usually that is.
But since the pc is cleaned?
Some hijacks still remain and have nowhere to go correctly and will just result in a error. therefore the 'Explorer Can Not Display The Webpage' is a valid error.
Await further help from boopme.
good luck with the cleaning
May i also offer some type of advice of downloading,
WOT - Web of Trust.
Its a simple traffic light system which tells you if the site is safe, neutral or bad.
It also stops you from going on certain pages or displays a warning screen before accessing servre sites such that will infect the pc or offer a misleading download, such as, My WebSearch.
I was in the same boat as you, my moms lappy' was attacked by MyWebSearch after she foolishly clicked a ad and downloaded it..
4 Hours it took me to remove that.

Hello, hopefully we'll have your PC as pretty as your weather soon.
This AV soft infection has truly evolved into a horror and is long in removing.
Many apps you install now carry toolbars and you need to uncheck that box before installing.
Let's do a Full MBam and an online scan.. Make sure all browsers and mail apps are closed.
Rerun MBAM (MalwareBytes) like this:
Open MBAM in normal mode and click Update tab, select Check for Updates,when done
click Scanner tab,select FULL scan and scan (normal mode).
After scan click Remove Selected, Post new scan log and Reboot into normal mode.
Please perform a scan with Eset Online Antiivirus Scanner.
(Requires Internet Explorer to work. If given the option, choose "Quarantine" instead of delete.)
Vista users need to run Internet Explorer as Administrator. Right-click on the IE icon in the Start Menu or Quick Launch Bar on the Taskbar and select Run as Administrator from the context menu.
Note: Some online scanners will detect existing anti-virus software and refuse to cooperate. You may have to disable the real-time protection components of your existing anti-virus and try running the scan again. If you do this, remember to turn them back on after you are finished.
- Click the green ESET Online Scanner button.
- Click on the Start button next to it.
- You may receive an alert on the address bar that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then click Insall ActiveX component.
- A new window will appear asking "Do you want to install this software?"".
- Answer Yes to download and install the ActiveX controls that allows the scan to run.
- Click Start.
- Check Remove found threats and Scan potentially unwanted applications.
- Click Scan to start. (please be patient as the scan could take some time to complete)
- If offered the option to get information or buy software. Just close the window.
- When the scan has finished, a log.txt file will be created and automatically saved in the C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\ folder.
- Click > Run..., then copy and paste this command into the open box: C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt
- The scan results will open in Notepad. Copy and paste the contents of log.txt in your next reply.

Sorry, couldn't be back here sooner but you did the right thing. They were fake warnings by the Rogue and fake malwares.
Good progress ...Run ESET and tell me how it is after that.
