Recently my computer got a virus which kept bringing up a window saying that a program had stopped responding and so I scanned my laptop with Malwerebytes and it managed to find the infected files and get rid of them. Now, before this, my laptop experienced a crash, which I presume was caused by the virus. When the virus was gone I noticed 2 things were wrong.
Firstly, I previously had User Account Control turned off however, when I restarted my computer it was back on. I'm not sure whether this was because of the crash, or something else.
Secondly I found out the the Itunes store couldn't connect even though Firefox was working fine. So I tried out Internet Explorer and it can't display any webpages. When I diagnose the problem, it says (for the site "google")
"www.google.co.uk" is not set up to establish a connection on port "World Wide Web service (HTTP)" with this computer.
Then it tells me to
Verify the current proxy server configuration
And when doing this I realise every thing seems to be set up as it should be, although I'm not 100% sure. I really don't understand what's going on, especially as firefox is working with no problem.
Thanks in advance!
