I have read through some of the other threads on here but am convinced i have a variation on a similar problem.
Basically i my browser kept getting hijacked by some "spad" thing and directing me to something like www.exexex.com (i may have got that wrong). Anyway, after much pissing about i managed to get rid of it and, for now at least, i am not being redirected anywhere. However, now when i click the desktop icon for internet explorer - nothing happens!! I can open other desktop icons such as "recycle bin" and "my computer" but i cannot get internet explorer to work. I am currently accessing it but opening the recycle bin and merely typing in the URL from there.
I am a complete buffoon when it comes to computers but would appreciate any assistance on this one, though please write in laymens terms!!
Cheers for any help
