I followed your steps to get rid of Paladin.

Everything is gone except, it is still blocking my access to the internet via all browsers.

A security box pops up and says I need to start antivirus 2010 or continue unprotected, and when I click continue unprotected, av.exe stops working and crashes the browser.

How would I go about fixing this problem?

Hello :thumbsup:

Based on the symptoms you are still experiencing, there are still infections remaining on your computer.

You may need to go to a "clean" (uninfected) computer to be able to download "fixes" and
carry them to the infected computer by way of a CD or a USB flash drive.
