Hey guys, for some reason, when I try to open up Skype for example, it asks me to download a file. The file can be opened with FireFox. If I refuse to download the link, the program just doesn't work. This is what happens when I try to open Skype:
This is what happens when I open the file in FireFox:
It takes me to the login page, but nothing happens.
I tried googling, and some sources say it may have something to do with internet explorer. I tried opening IE, and it just takes me to the download manager apparently. (I believe google is the starting page.) IE itself refuses to work, no matter what I press. I've tried de-activating and re-activating IE, but that didn't help.
This is what happens when I try to open IE:
Only the download manager opens.
I tried installing the newest version of CCleaner, but I received the same problem when it asked me whether I wanted to install Chrome or not.
Any ideas what could be the cause?
