    My Internet Explorer isn't working. It will only open some sites, but other sites it wont open. Im on mozilla right now. I dont think that its a problem with my ISP because i can go to the sites on mozilla that i cant on IE.

    Go to control panel, add/remove programs and click on it. Scroll to your IE program and click on it and you should see a box to check to "repair internet explorer".

    Click repair and reboot. See if this helps.

    Have you scanned for spyware? If not, download, install, immediately update and then run Spybot and/or AdAware (you can use them both.) Let whichever one you choose clean up any spyware it finds.

    Then get CWShredder and run it (link to the download is near the bottom of the page).

    Finally, if you are specifically having problems getting to search engine sites you may be infected with Qhosts. A removal tool can be download here.

    If you're still having problems, your computer may be infected with Qhosts. A removal tool can be download here.
