It's strange that reports say I have it installed because even Revo Uninstaller Pro search engine shows no results tied to McAfee input, or any variations.

Don't let us keep you from your studies.

Remember that this is just an adventure in learning... I'm learning too :-)

This computer problem will still be there in a few weeks when you have a break...

And (if you ever grow tired of this) you can always do a clean install.

Thanks UsernameIssues. I will end up doing a clean re-installation if we can't get this going by the time the next term of school starts. It would be nice to know the problem though!
VistaKing, I have successfully used the uninstaller and rebooted the computer. IE and Steam still refuse to find a connection, and I uninstalled Chrome out of curiosity the other day...

From a command prompt...
nslookup google.com
...press enter and let us know what you see. I think that this was failing several pages back via an automated tool; I just don't recall if we ever ran the test manually.

I did reset internet explorer settings, but it still doesn't connect. When I try to connect to a wesbite, the title of the tab (after the website fails to load) is ieframe.dll. what's that about?
Attached are a screenshot of IE and of cmd prompt.
Cheers!
