I just had a nasty trojan horse on my computer that I was able to eliminate, but while the trojan horse was on my computer, I think it messed up my Internet Explorer somehow. I was unable to open it while I had the virus, and now that it's gone, I still can't open it. Every time I open Internet Explorer, I get the error message that says "Internet Explorer cannot display this webpage." No matter what website I put in, it still doesn't work.

I tried turning my computer off and on, and it still doesn't work. My wireless internet connection is good, but it still doesn't work. I have tried turning my wireless off and then back on, and it still doesn't work. I can't think of what else to do. Please help!

Which version of Internet Explorer are you using? Have you tried uninstalling IE and reinstalling? It may even be as simple as deleting your cookies etc

I am using Internet explorer version 7. I tried resetting everything and it still didn't work. All my cookies and browsing history has been deleted. I even tried running it without add ons. How do I uninstall and reinstall Internet explorer?

You don't say what OS but it might be a damaged TCP/IP stack; click here
Different version for Win 7.
