Validation stops Windows explorer from responding RRS feed

  • Question

  • Relatively new Dell Optoplex GX520 using XP IE8. Was working until today. The genuine Windows authenticity stops Windows explorer from functioning so I can go nowhere on the net to fix the problem. I rolled back to previous restore points, ran a complete Securities Essential scan and removed 5 viruses. Everything else functions except Internet explorer.

    It sounds as if you're still infected with something.
    Download and install Malwarebytes Anti-malware (www.malwarebytes.org ) update it, then boot to Safe Mode, and run a Full System Scan in your main user profile, and a Quick Scan in every other profile.
