I am having the problem that I can not figure out and it is very frustrating so if anyone can help me PLEASE....
The computer has access as I can ping to IP addresses and URLs in cmd prompt however, no other program AIM, IE, Symantec AV updates, can get to the internet.
I also put the IP address in IE to see if it would go directly to the site without having to resolve with DNS and that did not work.
I have disabled all f/w's. However.....In the control panel it show the f/w disabled but in the tray on the task bar it show the red shield and when I open that it show that the f/w is ON. I don't know if this is a virus or not.
I have run Symantec AV and it removed some stuff. I ran malwarebytes and it removed some stuff. I ran smitfraudfix and combofix not sure what these fixed. All that required updates I could not do as I don't have internet connection from this computer. I got this information from a previous post.
I can't help but to think that the red shield is behind this and there is still some malware on the machine.
