I have a virus on my computer that does not allow me to access most websites, including Tech forums, antivirus websites, and more. I have used MBAM to try to fix the problem but it hasn't worked. What should I do? Please help!

Hello :thumbsup:

See the Troubleshoot section here as regards Proxy settings:
How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware to scan and remove malware from your computer
Posted by Grinler on February 16, 2010


Did you check to see if you have a corrupt Hosts file?
How do I reset the hosts file back to the default?

See Post #2 by quietman7 (Global Moderator) on Proxy settings and Hosts file:

If you would post your Malwarebytes' scan log into your next reply, it would be helpful for one of the official staff members to help you with. It would tell them specifically which infection(s) you have, and what course of action is appropriate for you. Copy/paste the ENTIRE CONTENTS of your Malwarebytes' scan results log into your next reply.

I am not authorized to help with logs.

"only trained members of the following groups: Malware Response Team, Malware Study Hall Senior, Moderators or Administrators are allowed to help people with logs. "

Provide a detailed description of your problem, detailed word-for-word error messages that you are receiving, screenshots of strange behaviour (if you can), and which operating system you have.

If we don't change the direction we are going,
We are likely to end up where we are headed.
