basically iexplorer/firefox/all the other browsers i have tried only work sometimes (they used to work perfectly fine). i have reinstalled them, scanned for viruses, spyware etc. anyway.. an example of problem - a friend gives me a link on msn to view a website, i click it, nothing happens. there are other things that dont work, but that is the most common one. i really have no clue what the problem could be.. so meh. if computer specs or anything will help you resolve this please ask.

thanks,

Does MSN continue to work even when you can't get web pages?

Is that the only problem, when you clik a link in msn it dosent open?

Does your browser function in every other way?

Do you have a similar problem when clicking links emailed to you?

Depending on how many browsers you've installed, make IE the default browser. That maybe why links dont work.

Or get hijackthis http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip

UNZIP it first, into its own folder. And scan / copy and paste the log here.

Reboot into safe mode.

Tick these, then tick fix checked. Also turn system restore OFF.

C:\Program Files\MSN Messenger\MSN Messenger.exe

I dont think this is MSN messenger's file.

This is a worm - Messenger worm

Download this and run it

You run hijackthis again in safe mode, and the entries that appeared, like the first log u posted, tick them then tick fix checked.

After the entries have been ticked and you've ticked fix checked and deleted those entries.

Reboot and post another log here. Make sure u UNZIP hijackthis first, into its own folder, before u run it this time. DON'T run it within the zip file.

That looks a bit better. Just a few more to tick and remove in safe mode.

Then reboot again. Then post another log after. Just to see if its clean.

Are the links working now?

Looks clean to me !

I would uninstall AVG / and reinstall it again now, (if you haven't yet), and get a decent firewall.

Everything working OK now??

You could also update Java as well.

Well, you may have no choice but to set IE as the default browser.

If you use more than 1 browser. Whatever the other browsers are u use, say NO when they bring up a message, asking if u want to use them as the default browser.

Is that the only problem, when you click a link in msn it dosent open?

Does your browser function in every other way?

Do you have a similar problem when clicking links emailed to you?

tried that, but it still happens.

no there are other problems, but i don't come across the often and can get round them.


Do you have a similar problem when clicking links emailed to you?
yes exact same problem. it has also been screwing up when i'm viewing a site. i click a link and it just closes the browser.

where would i find the file to reinstall internet explorer?
