Hey all~

I just got infected with a Malware virus that basically hijacked Firefox and IE to where they would not open. I was able to remove the same, but now my Internet connection will not work. It's probably something simple and I am going to troubleshoot the same, but I'm not certain. I changed the proxy setting back on Firefox to "no proxy", reset the modem, checked connections, so far no dice. Any help would be appreciated.

You can try repairing Winsock settings using This program, or, since you have no internet, you can manually do it by following the instructions here.
