Only recently I noticed something wrong with my networks, my internet network was missing and i couldn't connect to the internet VIA IE, here's the story.

I use Hamachi, a program that creates a LAN connection over the internet, I opened it and it gives me an error - hamachi failed to automatically determine web proxy

Anyway I went looking around and i discovered my internet connection is missing from my network connections folder
On a feeling i opened IExplorer and it said i had no internet connection and if i tried to diagnose it, It didn't find anything

Fearing something happened to my internet connection I tried the modem, everything seamed fine, I went online VIA Firefox on the same PC and searched for the error

I searched and I found a thread in these forums and I proceeded to follow the instructions but stopped when I figured I better ask directly for help.

Is no one taking me seriously?

Why is my internet connection missing from my network places, It was there 3 days ago, now its missing, I read up some where that it has to do with the connection being shared and I'm concerned.

I ran ComboFix.exe and found several things is there anything I should do after that?

What makes you so sure that you're infected?

Please download Win32kDiag.exe by AD and save it to your desktop.

  • This tool will create a diagnostic report for me to review.
  • Double-click on Win32kDiag.exe to run and let it finish.
  • When it states Finished! Press any key to exit..., press any key on your keyboard to close the program.
  • A file called Win32kDiag.txt should be created on your Desktop.
  • Open that file in Notepad and copy/paste the entire contents (from Starting up... to Finished! Press any key to exit...) in your next reply.

Go to Posted Image > Run..., then copy and paste this command into the open box: cmd

A file called log.txt should be created on your Desktop.
Open that file and copy/paste the contents in your next reply.
