After virus removal IE not able to open save or open files from the web.


- I have ran malwarebytes, awdcleaner, comboxfix, and tdsskiller.

- I have check settings in IE to make sure downloading was enabled

- all other browser work fine ... chrome, firefox

- I have taken IE off the machine by turning off IE in windows services via uninstall programs, rebooted and ran ccleaner, then re-enabled IE...still cannot download and save files

- I have rest IE...still same issue.


The only thing other thing I have found online regarding this is that IE may have lost it admin rights or something like that. have any of you ran across this issue before?

Not 100% but I would post on Am I infected part of forum. Probably a virus.


You can always try creating new user and testing from there but that ain't some solution.....

The issue is probably running ComboFix and letting it remove something it should not have..

We need you to repost this issue in a new topic here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and include that ComboFix log.

Let me know if that went well/
