I was infected with Windows Antivirus Pro. I located another person with the same issue and followed the instructions that was posted. I downloaded Fixtm.reg even though Antivirus Pro was not listed in task manager. I downloaded it because I could not open windows task manager. I could not find "svchast.exe" either. I already have Malwarebytes and ran a complete scan. It located some issues but I believe they were not part of Antivirus Pro.

My computer seems to be working fine now. It boots up with no issues and I have no pop ups. The issue I am having now is that my computer (Dell Inspiron 1525, Vista) cannot connect to the internet using Internet Explorer. My sidebar Gadgets cannot connect either. I can connect using Firefox. The program must have changed some settings but I can not determine which ones. Does anyone know what I can check?

Thank you in advance,

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
