Psecurity infected my laptop, which is one of two computers using FIOS to connect to the internet. The desktop connects fine, the laptop connects to my network, but not to the internet.
Steps I have taken: I downloaded onto a flash (since I couldn't get on internet on laptop) and then installed and ran rkill on laptop. Did the same with MBAM. The message box said it found no viruses. The computer did seem to run ok though, except for this one thing: I cannot connect to the internet. It does connect to the netowrk fine and the router is working fine. I called Verizon FIOS and they checked that I had the rite IP, WEP key number, etc. It all checked out fine as far as they are concerned.
So, what's going on? Do I still have a virus? Thank you so much for any help you can give me.

What about Safe mode with Networking ! Check to see if this is working, if not check in services to see if your DNS Clent is set at started automatic, to check this type services.msc into start (Vista) or run (XP) click enter in the list on the right hand side scroll down to DNS Client this should be set to Started Automatic !
For a full list of your services depending on your OS click this link http://www.blackviper.com and click on your particular OS, and then check all your services are in order !

It was just after downloading the blackviper services list in my other computer (the comment in previous post) that that computer was badly infected. Coincidence or not? Whatever, I would still appreciate a moderator or someone authorized to give me info on how to proceed... I still cannot connect to the internet although I seem to have gotten rid of all the viruses. Many thanks.
