I have a windows vista 32bit laptop which will not browse the internet with IE 8 or ie9. Google browser will function properly. Eset , Malwarebytes, SAS, Kaspersky Virus removal tool and Microsoft security essential scans do not identify any malicious files. Hijack this does report a couple of bho's that look suspicious, and attempting to remove them are unsuccessful. I did also run combofix which found two files in temp folders which combofix reports to delete, "fiesys.dll" and "http.dll", but after rebooting the computer those files in the temp folder remain. I cannot manually delete these files. I can rename the files.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
Thanks in advance,

If none of those tools solved the problem then I suggest you start a new thread on the Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs section.

Before you post please read Preparation Guide For Use Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help.
