    I'm so stressed because i'm having problems with my laptop.

    Although the laptop seems to be working properly, the problem is with internet explorer. When I search in google, the results are listed in an unusual way. For example, if I type name of movies in search, when the results come up, they are listed very different as you will see in the photo attached.

    After doing some research, I found out that it could be some kind of virus. I read somewhere that I have to change proxy settings in LAN settings. But, whenever I change settings, uncheck box and save, the setting don't seem to change.

    I don't know what is happening here.

    Do I have to factory reset my Laptop?

    Please help
