I had a fake windows security alert virus, which I was able to get rid of using Dr. Web Cure-it. Now, however, Internet Explorer can't connect. I use Firefox anyway, so I wouldn't actually care, except that McAfee is telling me it can't access updates. So, I'd like to either figure out how to get IE to work, or, tell McAfee to use Firefox, but I can't figure out how to do either. Help!

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
