hey i have windows XP home and windows live OneCare as well as avast.
i was having problem with IE 7, so i decided to download IE 8 beta.
I downloaded and installed it.
When i opened the internet and i couldnt get any page to display. Instead of messing around with it, i just restored my computer to right before i installed IE8.
With the computer retored i tried to open the internet and IE closes before my homepage can even display.
I then restored the copmputer to an even earlier time and this didnt not help.
The only way i can get on the internet is through aol explorer [previously installed]
I did some reseach and found that i may have a virus or block.
My firewall is disabled and greyed out stating that group policies dont allow settings to be changed.
I am logged in as the administrator. There are no other users and im not on a network.
I CANNOT download or upload anything. When i try to download something, an empty window opens but not a 'run or save' window. The "save target as" option doesnt work and I cant even save a picture.
i cant get "internet options" to open from my tools either.
PLEASE HELP !!!!!
