I hope I can get some help here. My computer skills are good. Used to work in IT for six years, so I can make my way around a computer. Basically, what I am saying is I'm not a total idiot. LOL
I have double & triple check the scripting in the Internet/Tools/Security. In the scripting section of Security, it is enabled. The odd thing about all of this is, just about all other websites load correctly. When I got to att.com, att.net, att.yahoo.com, they do not load. IE just sits there. I thought it may be a problem with IE, so I tried downloading Mozilla Firefox, nothing. Again, it just sits there. We have two laptops, the other works just fine.
I did run Malwarebytes last night. It did find some threats. Those were quarantined and deleted. I then deleted MWB. My next step was loading the McAfee setup program from the good laptop onto a flashdrive. I downloaded the program onto the 'troubled' laptop and attempted to run it from the desktop. Nothing, again, it just sits there.
I'm stumped at this point. I have went into add/remove programs to make sure the old McAfee subscription that came with the computer was removed and it has bee. I have also deleted the old McAfee file from the registry using REGEDIT.
Again, I am stumped. I have never seen an issue where specific websites would not load. None of the AT&T websites will load, Mozilla will not download and neither will McAfee. I have tried loading Firefox and McAfee from both the web and from the desktop. Nothing.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Internet security is medium. I have went through comparing the settings from the good laptop to the troubled laptop. The setting are the same on both.
Is this a registry issue, malware, virus, etc? The problem is, I can't get McAfee to load and install so that I can run a virus scan...LOL
