I use Windows XP Home SP2 and IE7.
I recently was infected by a virus that hijacked my dialler to an http://secure
32. it was thought this had been solved but it appears it is reappearing/spreading.
Upon trying to search the web more and more often I'm getting the message 'IE cannot display this page' but all the help offered does nothing. My security centre is disabled and I cant access it, same with windows firewall- i just get 'due to unidentified problem, cannot display windows firewall settings.'
Microsoft help is useless. In fact I think Microsoft is specifically targeted as I cant access usergroups, do downloads etc. Even MSN is totally blocked and troubleshooting/repair just replies unknown problem error.
My main concern is some sites I cannot access seem specifically targeted. Betfair for example. I have a cash holding account there but cant access it, though I can load the mainpage, some windows within the main page show IE cannot display...etc' and an increasing number of password access sites are being denied-even netpassport login show automatic 'fatal login errors'. I am desperate, due to illness I am currently housebound and this slow painful death of my PC has driven me to my wit's end...and as I'm a half wit it was a damn quick drive! I dont think a reformat is a viable option as my High Street Chainstore purchased PC did not come with a disc, and calls to their head office meet with the standard responses of either 'not this department' 'pc manufacturers problem' 'it's out of warranty' etc etc.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
