My roommate was using my computer and I ended up getting the infamous facebook virus.

I noticed tinyproxy.exe running in the background and took the necessary steps after reading through other posts on this forum.
(I was able to access websites at this point)

I was able to remove tinyproxy by running Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware.
A restart was required by Malwayrebytes in order to remove the last couple tinyproxy files.

Once I restarted, I am not able to go to any websites (tried in FireFox, IE, and Google Chrome).
But it seems my internet connection is just fine, as I am able to chat through the Google Talk app.

I've run Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, Lavasoft Ad-Aware, Spybot S&D, and ESET NOD32, removing any infections they found.

I am at a standstill now and desperately need your expert advice.

Nevermind guys, I got it to work. Apparently the virus also set all my web browsers to use a proxy. Everything works fine now after I disabled them.
