Problem is IE 8 will work perfectly in Safe Mode with Networking either wireless or ethernet but not in normal mode.
After a virus attack I did a System Restore to the day before to clear it, this was successful but it wiped out my newly installed Panda Global Security 2012. I waited a few hours making sure all was well and IE 8 was performing well using MS Firewall.
I re-installed Panda and a few hours later the virus was back, this time Panda caught it but not before part of it got through. The Virus was XP Internet Security 2012 and takes over MS Security Centre and says you you are infected pay us $69 and we'll fix it.
I did another System Restore, but this time IE 8 comes up with "cannot connect to the internet"
I have run msconfig and alls well both Wireless and Ethernet working.
Should I dump IE 8 and re-install or what do you think.
