On Jul 9 2010, 07:53 AM I posted my problem of IE not being able to display webpages. It was moved to the Security forum under "Am I infected?". I had been attacked apparently by the AV Security protection scheme. After going through steps to get rid of it all executable programs seem to work fine except for the message that the webpage could not be displayed when I tried to access one.
Yesterday my granddaughter came to visit and I thought that she would not be able to use my computer because of it not being able to access websites. I remembered that I had set up a "Kids" account for the grandkids so that if they downloaded something with a virus, it would not affect my account. Then the light dawned; maybe the virus that attacked me while using my account might not have affected their "Kids" account. So, I logged onto their account and tried to access the internet. Voila! It worked fine. I am using their account to post this.
So, I hope someone out there might be able to guide me as to how to fix my account so accessing the internet will work. Thanks again for this website and forum.
