My computor wont let me open internetexplorer it show error please send to microsoft i beleive it has some kind of virus that is blocking me access ?


hi,
it's possible that this might be the result of a virus attack in which case you should run a full anti virus scan on your system. However, there's also the possibility of a missing configuration file from the internet explorer setup. I suggest you uninstall the internet explorer and then download a new current version. Hope this helps

E machine search page keeps poping up when Im looking at other sites


It is possible you have a virus. Check your anti-virus software is up to date and you should do a complete scan of your computer. If you do not have anti virus software then I would recommend Avast free version, with this you can schedule a boot time scan which will remove a virus hiding in the windows system files. you should also scan for adware and spyware with one of the free programs available to do this.

Shift key sends pc into standby


You should check the power properties page. It's possible that the shift key somehow was assigned to standby. The other possibility is that you have a virus that has re-written part of your keyboard mapping. Run a virus scan using the most up to date definition file for your scanner.

Virus disabled my sound and I can't download any anti virus softw


You Better Format your Drive if not possible then plug it on some other PC (Which got the AntiVirus, with Latest Updates ).
Scan it then, make it clean and go on.
But if your Machine is totally messed up then it will be very difficult for you make it absolutely error free, so the best is to begin again with the antivirus, and keep the Virus Updated.
Regards.

Macafee button stays black saying virus scan diabled but when I run check manualy itsays all systems up to date.Whats wrong?


Its possible the resident scanner is disabled. Right click the scanner icon or check program preferences and locate the option to enable the resident scanner. It is also possible you have malware which is disabling the scanner. No single virus scanner can find all infections.
Run another known good scanner to rule out infections.
