I have been having numerous problems with this machine (and another desktop). Something keeps changing my Internet options to "use proxy server" In the Options tool menu. I am also getting script error warnings now on IE. I had to make IE my default browser today because I couldn't see some of the buttons on the forum pages that I follow. I.E. "comment", "quote" etc. while having Firefox set as my default browser. I usually use Firefox. I had problems last week and Mozilla recommended a "beta" version 34 but that didn't fix the issues. I also paid for and activated Malwarebytes Pro and it found problems on multiple scans on this machine after restarts.


I just installed a brand new hard drive in the problematic desktop too.


Running IE 11.


Can't even find the search window in IE 11 (it's MIA). Can't set my default search engine which has always been Google.
