Internet Explorer will not connect
Posted on 2012-09-18
I am working on a machine that was infected. I ran ComboFix, MalwareBytes, and CCleaner, and all seemed well. No residual issues, except, Internet Explorer will not connect to any sites.
Google Chrome and Firefox open and run with no issues. I have reset all settings for IE. During the reset, I was able to connect once to google. After closing and reopening, IE stops connecting. Also, within IE, when accessing the settings menu, all of the options are grayed out. Once I open IE and am prompted to turn on add-ons, the menu is available, but, still cannot connect.
I have reverted back to the previous version of IE, but, it just simply stalls when opening.
The problem occurs with virus protection on and off.
