Internet explorer doesn't work at all

Basically my internet explorer doesn't work. It just hangs on loading pages and eventually gets this error:

"This program cannot display the webpage

Most likely causes:
You are not connected to the Internet.
The website is encountering problems.
There might be a typing error in the address."

I can still access the internet through chrome and Firefox though so it's an IE issue. I also can play online games fine.

Anyway, programs like Skype that use IE to load stuff such as adding contacts doesn't work. I have tried the following things:
-Reset internet explorer
-Downgraded to IE8

I am running windows 7 32 bit and am on cable. Any ideas on what I can do?

  1. Run deep scan for viruses.
  2. 99% Viruses infection probability (IE is like an open door for those).
  3. run hijack this, malware bytes antimalware, and a good anti virus.
  4. It could be an add on that is causing the problem, try disabling all add on's.

    I believe that was done on purpose. The browser and OS are actually running inside a VM.
  7. Believe or not, my brother in law and his wife in their early to mid 50's let me their laptop to check something and I had 2 inches to see the page. I have seen it about 5 times bad like that. And I am not a technician on PC.

    The picture is from google pics as reference, as u get nasties from it as well :)
