If you removed spyware via Malwarebytes, I certainly agree with hamluis that you should run a scan with a valid up to date antivirus program.
My other suggestion just to see if it is an easy fix, click Start => Control Panel => Internet Options.
If you are running XP you may need to click Start => Settings => Control Panel
Alternatively, you can open Internet Explorer and click Tools => Internet Options
Once you have Internet Options open click the "Connections" tab, then the "LAN settings" button.
Make sure there is not a check mark under the "Proxy server" options.
If there is a check mark, un check all the boxes and click "OK" to exit.
Close out of IE and try to access a web page again.
