Hi. I know that I have some type of malware on my Dell inspiron 1150. I am running windows xp, and recently picked up the Windows police pro virus. I seem to have eliminated the pop-ups associated with that rogue program, and I think that I successfully removed the program contents, but ever since that initial infection my computer has had persistent problems. I have tried multiple malware programs including Malware Bytes, OTM, Spyware Doctor, Super Anti-spyware, and Combofix. My most recent symptom is loss of internet connection. I get this message: notification dll has not been registered, program will not work correctly.
System restore has also been nullified by whatever is going on here.
Combofix picked up some stuff, but it isn't able to run completely because of the lack of internet connection.
Even the settings for the start bar for windows have been changed somehow.
The virus protection program that I use is Antivir PE classic. At first the virus prevented this from working. Now it looks like its working, but I don't think that it is really working fully.
Also, when the internet was working, any google search results that I clicked on were hijacked to a different page or search engine. I don't know if that is related.
Anyway i have just about had it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
