IE, it's all blank!?

After using mcafee quick clean lite all the pages I open in internet explorer are blank. Although they appear properly in opera and slimbrowser. Also help and support doesn't work I click on it, an egg timer pops up but nothing more happens after the egg timer goes away. I'm running win xp pro with all patches/updates applied. Oh, windows update doesn't work either, it too is blank. Any Ideas chaps?

If it's not a Mcafee issue:

Look in add/remove to see what updates it thinks are on there (which they probably aren't fully) and delete, reboot. If still blank pages try deleting/reverting ie also and rebooting. If ok go to M$ windows update and 'scan' for updates.

BTW there's been many conflicts with xp and updates. One way is to delete 'updater' and reinstall from M$.

Thanks powerless but still no joy. I neglected to mention that only certain websites are affected it seems. such as freeserve.com and windows update. google, pca work ok. I can't get to system restore to try rolling back to before the mcafee thing because that is in the help and support centre and it doesn't work.

couldn't get a soltion despite forcing a complete uninstall of ie and re-installing, in fact that made the prob worse. So I opted for a fresh reformat and install of xp from scratch (thats what I get for going the upgrade route in the beginning I suppose. Thanks all for your help.
