IE 7 Bing search engine does not work RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am pulling out what little hair I have left. Since I downloaded this garbage the only search engine I can get is something called 'search.com' . Bing does not work,  if I type in google.com it just says it won't display the page. I have also had Nod32 closed down and it seems to be pointing towards firewalls but I have turned off the windows one. I just want to use my computer again properly.

  • Hi John,

     

    It is recommended to save the malicious software removal tool onto your desktop. The clean boot is safe. It will disable all 3 third party services or program on startup to narrow down the issue.
