I managed to get some sort of virus onto my computer and could really use some help. I'm far from an expert so please bare with me. I've been looking around for a few days now to try and find a solution with no luck. My operating system is Windows XP. The main issues its causing is blocking any internet connection, anti-spyware programs and the sound will not work. When I open the Task Manager I can see the process IPCONFIG.exe continuosly appearing and then disappearing. I tried Malwarebytes only to get "Run-time Error 372 Failed to load control 'vbalGrid' from vbalsgrid6.ocx. Your version of vbalsgrid6.ocx may be outdated. Make sure you are using the version of the control that was provided with your application." That error shows up even after trying to rename the .exe file and uninstalling and reinstalling multiple times. I tried both HijackThis and RootRepeal but they will both scan for a minute and then close. I have ComboFix on my desktop but haven't run it since it says elsewhere on the forums not to. I don't really know what my next step should be. Any help is very appreciated. Thanks.
