My wife got some viruses on my desktop a while back. I have ran Malwarebytes several times and picked up random rogue software and trojans. The only issue I have left is IE's HTTP access is blocked. I can use FireFox and IE FTP correctly. The only reason this is really an issue is that a few other programs that need internet access cannot connect either. Can someone help me find a fix for this?

<<The only issue I have left is IE's HTTP access is blocked.>>

If that's an accurate assessment...you could check to see if malware invoked a proxy server on your system.

1.Open Internet Explorer.

2.Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.

3.Click the Connections tab, and then click LAN settings.

4.Uncheck any boxes on that tab...that have check marks.

5.When you are finished making changes, click OK until you return to Internet Explorer.
