I got a virus. i got rid of it and now internet explorer will come up but not go anywhere. I've typed in various things with out any luck, I've changed the security and privacy options with no help, I've troubleshot the connect no help. I've even tried a system restore.
Now here is the weird thing I logged off adminstrator on to guest user and here I am on the internet, and of course if I go back to administrator no internet.
Can anyone tell me how to get my internet back on administrator log on?

Reboot the computer, press F8 on start up, Select- safe mode with networking.

Download AntiVIR (http://www.free-av.com/en/download/download_servers.php)

Update and run. Also same with spybot S&D. and ccleaner.

What OS are you using? Hopefully you're not using IE6. Download and install Firefox http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/. Then log into your account and and try surfing using Firefox. I would also uninstall and disable all toolbars/plugins for IE.

Open a command prompt and run this command to flush your dns cache.

ipconfig /flushdns
