I've been having problems with viruses lately and have just downloaded bit defender as a way of combating these nasties. I have also downloaded Ad-aware Se personal and some yahoo toolbar anti-virus thing. These have all run successfully and I think all the unwanted files have been removed. However, I believe that I may have removed something imprtant in the process. The problem is, esstentially, that download anything. The computer tells me something about proxy servers and microsoft updates, which I can't carry out. I cannot even open my internet banking site which has always worked before. I would very much appreciate any advice you can give me towards fixing this problem.

I'd suggest submitting a hijackthis log here as you may still have infections causing your problem.

How to submit a hijackthis log

Download Hijackthis

Try running the following from safe mode (Getting to safe-mode) Sysclean you'll also need the virus template file from here lpt***.zip


DrWeb CureIT

If your good with the command line also try Sophos Command Line scanner

Also try installing and running A2 Free and Ewido

I'd also run Spybot and Adaware

If your using Win2K/XP run adaware/spybot from "safe mode with command prompt"

At the C:\ prompt type the following:-

C:\progra~1\spybot~1\spybotsd.exe /autocheck /autofix

What exactly are the different error messages you are getting with each kind of action?
Did you delete any cookies that might contain passwords to your banking site?
What browser are you using?
What are you attempting to download?
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
