I've scanned the comp with malwarebytes and am running another scan right now with avg9.
Anyway, so far, the network connection is running smoothly, modified the firewall several times, and removed all the cookies/temp/etc files, as well as reverted back to IE factory settings, but still doesn't work.
Not at the computer at the moment, so I'll give what info I can.
Also, is there any problems that could come up with updating out of order? Say I upgrade to IE 8, would I also need to upgrade .net, etc? (Reason I ask, is because the "FixMe" program that microsoft had for one of the fixes for this problem (possibly) needed a couple of updates. Which I couldn't get because I couldn't get IE or AutoUpdates to connect, and as usual Firefox doesn't work with Microsoft's web site).
<Edit> Forgot to mention also, that there were no updates made to the system, no changes other than getting and removing an avg virus, which the last time I removed it these issues with IE didn't happen.
Automatic Updates tab in system freezes, and window is not moveable. (5 minutes later, it finally came on. Clicked on disable then froze again)
Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage
