I just recently got my computer back from a tech center to help clean it out (it got a littled messed up) and now I am having a weird issue with trying to run IE or AIM.
With IE, it doesnt matter what I do, I cannot get it to connect to the internet at all. I have tried reinstalling it, downloading an earlier version (6.0), just about everything, and no matter what I do, it will still not connect to the internet.
The same thing happens with AIM, however I was able to get that working with installing an earlier version of AIM (5.8 or something before the new 6.0 came out).
The most interisting part about this is that everything else seems to work fine. I am able to use Firefox browser, which I am using now even. I am able to connect online to Warcraft and just about everything else.
I need to connect to IE though, because Windows updates the system through them, as well as my ISP requires I use IE to download my Anti Virus software.
Now, I have tried everything I can think of to see if maybe I have a virus or spyware which is causing this. I have ran 3 different Spyware programs (AdAware, Spy Bot and Counter Spy) which have all came up empty. I have also installed and run a complete virus scan with AVG virus scanner (as I said, I cannot even download the Macfee one I get for free through my ISP because I need to be able to connect to IE).
