Ok Guys, odd one...

I open up explorer (which default homepage is www.google.co.uk) and slowly but surely it will come up.

Type something - anything into the search and submit...
It seems to try to find something then will return an internal server error 500.

I have installed explorer 8 to try and solve the above problem that occured even with Explorer 7 but still no luck.

I have tried all the usual anti-spyware and virus stuff in case this was the cause. (spybot, spywareblaster, malware bytes, avira antivirus etc, cleared temps)

Now the computer used to have mcafee on but I removed it in case this was the cause.

I even tried making a brand new user and the same thing happens with that, google, search, internal server error 500.

If I manually type in a website it works, but cant seem to get google to work!

I also noticed a BING addon... is this normal?

Help please guys!! Is there anyway I can completely remove all of explorers cached websites as it never seems to fully clean up.


Thanks
Andy

I think I solved it, find your hosts file and just rename it to something else, you may find on next reboot all the problematic hosts are back, this could be a program or virus altering it, until sorted you could write a batch file that simply renames it.

host files are in c:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
and probably similar location in vista.

Hope that helped someone!

Hi Andy!

I tried your suggestion and no luck unfortunately. I'm still getting the 'HTTP 500 Internal Server Error' when I try to log in to my favourite website....don't have the problem with any other websites?

Have ran all virus checks, cleared cache, defrag, everything I could think of? Do you have anymore suggestions please help?
TIA
