Recently I got in my toughest battel yet with a spyware and virus. I had spy sheriff and brave sentry on my computer along with a bunch of other things. I actually find it fun and entertaining trying to fight off new spywares and virues, however this one took a little longer then usual and needed many other different things.

After finally getting it removed and my computer stopped crashing, I tried to watch a video on youtube.com but couldnt because it said "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Macromedia's Flash Player. Click here to get the latest flash player." Flash is updated and fine, and javascript has been enabled. However it still doesnt work. I have a feeling that something got deleted that makes all that work, whether it was a file or registry key. Ive tried to "repair" and "reinstall" internet explorer but no luck. I tried to download IE 7 but I kept getting the blue stop screen which crashed my computer.

I am all out of ideas. I do not wish to use firefox or any other web browsers because I need IE for different programs I have.

Questions: Is there anything that might be causing this problem? How can I entirely take IE off my comp, then put it back on? Would that help? Has anyone experienced this problem before?

Thanks for the reply. I tried the first method. I guess it wouldnt hurt to give the other a try. I would really like to refrain from reinstalling windows, however is seems like it maybe be coming up to that point since this is beyond annoying. Also, there is still some spyware that keeps popping up every once in awhile. Man, has these things gotten ruthless over the years. Unfortuantly, due to needing my computer for school at the moment, I wont be able to reinstall windows until next week sometime. Hopefully by then someone might have different suggestions if this doesnt work.

You might want to consider posting a HijackThis log for examination:

Once you post your log, don't make any changes to your system, as that could change the results of the posted log, making it more difficult to properly clean your system.

Read Preparation Guide for use before posting a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, >at this link<.
Do not, post it in this topic.
Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, as these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
