(I'm running Windows 7 with Avast Professional anti-virus on a Toshiba Satellite laptop.) Yesterday I became infected with some version of the "Antivirus Action" virus, and went looking for a cure. I ended up using the self-help guide at My link
, carefully doing each step in order, which worked quite well, except that now neither IE nor Chrome will work on my computer. IE gives me "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" and Chrome "This webpage is not available," with the "Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error." Firefox still works normally. If anyone has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.
