Sorry, didn't help at all. Now, my computer won't let me respond to you so I'm responding via my iphone 5
very strange sounds like you have many Computer issues

When was the last time your machine worked as it should
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Like I said, it all began about a week ago when I inadvertantly uninstalled McAfee. Computer works just fine, but I can't access my bank accounts or my credit cards online via this computer, or download anything. I thought for certain it had to be an issue with internet explorer. McAfee has ran a virus scan and their tech says "No Virus, etc.".

I ran across this website and thought you could help, but apparently can't help me. Thanks for trying!
