Hi, I downloaded a movie through a torrent file and when I ran it, it asked for a license from the internet which I installed and I got hit by this DNS changer spyware.
Since its not the first time I get hit by such a spyware, I opened hijackthis and deleted the entries corresponding to that DNS.
I also used the following spyware removal tools and scanned my computer many times, at first some infections were found, but now, no tool can find anything on my computer:
-ad aware spyware
-SUPERAntiSpyware
-Spybot seek and destroy
-symantec endpoint protection
-malware bytes
-eScan (MWAV)
-Spyware terminator

I don't see the 85.255.115.154 DNS anymore in the registry or in the connections settings, but when I "diagnose" my local area connection, the error message that appears is:
"Cannot communicate with DNS server(85.255.115.154)"
I am able to do normal browsing on the internet and even use skype
But when I try to connect to a private VPN(like cisco vpn), the VPN connection does not resolve to a domain name and the VPN connection is thus useless.

Can anyone help me please?
Attached is my DDS log
Thanks a lot

One more thing. When I have the DNS service enabled, I can not access the malware bytes website, you think its related?
I have to stop and disable the DNS service to be able to browse the malware bytes website

Thanks again
