I recently got a virus on my laptop that tried to get me to download fraudulent antivirus software. I followed instructions and ran SmitFraudFix in safemode. That helped a lot, but it came back, so I searched some more and followed a topic here from April where the user had the same problem. So, I've run the SmitFraudFix again, then I used SuperAntiSpyware. After that, I couldn't boot up my computer normally, it always stopped at an options screen where I could pick the different ways, so I started in the "last normal config" and it has been okay starting since.
However, the internet no longer works. There are no Network Connection icons in the system tray, Wireless or Local. When I go to My Network Places, there is nothing there except a butterfly icon that says "My Web Sites on MSN" Also if this is relevant, in my systray the time is in 24 hour mode and it the words "Virus Alert!" are immediately to the right. Clicking the words only brings up the date and time adjustment.
