I was hit with a virus and malware on Monday (accidentially opened and clicked on an e-mail w a link to a virus -- I thought I knew better!). I have rid my system of the virus -- at least according to Norton, Adware and Spybot.
When in safe mode w networking, I can open IE and Firefox and access the Internet.
But in normal mode, when I try to open either one, they hang. IE helpfully closes and says I should submit a report to Microsoft, which I have done. But Firefox just hangs, and then goes non-responding.
I assume something is stuck somewhere in my normal boot registry that is causing this (maybe a fragment of the virus trying to work or something?), but have reached the edge of my computer expertise.
Can someone help me?
