    Getting Invalid Syntax Error when I use IE. Websites that are on the Favorites seem to work fine, but if I type in an address that isn't on the list, I get Page Cannot Be Displayed and Invalid Syntax Error message on the top of the browser.
    Any suggestions? MSN Explorer doesn't work at all. Firefox works just fine. This computer recently had a bunch of spyware, but I've cleaned it up a lot.
    Please help. Below is my HJThis log.

    Hiya

    I've moved you to Web and Email for more response :)

    Are you still getting this problem? I'll get someone to check the log for you, just in case somethings been missed.

    Also, lets clean some things up:

    Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content.

    Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
    Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
    Apply and OK

    Regards

    eddie
