My 2 year-old HP Desk Top (w/Windows Vista Home Premium) has recently not been allowing me to go to Internet Explorer. I get a screen from AV saying that I have viruses and need to sign up for their spyware at $69.95! I ran the AVG spyware that's already on the computer and it cleared out two viruses. However, when I try to log on to the internet (which I have as High Speed through AT&T), the screen reads: www.mywebsearch.com is not set up to establish a connection on port "world wide web service (http) with this computer. Verify current proxy configuration. What do I need to do? Thanks

Try downloading and using the SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner instead. Save the randomly named file (i.e. SAS_1710895.COM) to a usb drive or CD and transfer to the infected computer. Then double-click on it to launch and scan. The file is randomly named to help keep malware from blocking the scanner.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
