Specs: Windows Vista
I have Windows Vista and have iexplore.exe virus. I am locked out of virtually everything. I cannot even access internet explorer. How can I fix it without downloading a virus protection.

Thanks, Michelle

If you can get into Safe mode, run Malwarebytes 1st & then SUPERAntiSpyware.

Try it in Safe mode.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.

Rename all the .exe files in the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder and try to run it again.
When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.

Download & install.

MichelleGutz, what are the symptoms? Are you saying you cannot get online?

"How can I fix it without downloading a virus protection."
This is a bit confusing, what anti-virus prog are you presently using?
You will need some anti-spy removers as well as other scans done. We need more info to save us from guessing for an answer

"charge me $200 to fix"
No need to pay Michelle, googling is the trick.

Check if the virus has changed your proxy settings.

Start > Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > LAN settings, untick > Use a proxy server for your LAN. Click OK twice.

Ok Michelle, tap f8 on bootup and try to get in to safe mode with networking. I'm assuming you have an ethernet connection.
If you can get in, then we can start downloading some progs to fix your PC.
Let me know if you can get in. Hopefully using John's suggestion of unchecking proxy server will work for you.
