My laptop was being used by a member of my household. Browsing through facebook and opened a utube video request. Immediately the laptop was infected with the koobface virus. I searched the internet and found a post on bleeping computer with instructions on how to remove. Virus was not allowing me to go to most useful web sites. I logged PC up in safe mode. Downloaded and installed "rkill" and "mbam" After the software was installed I returned to normal mode. Ran tools and removed the koobface virus. All was well I thought.

I am now not able to update AVG virus protection, Spybot Search & Destroy updates are disabled. Even windows update will not go to correct internet site. The web site shows a message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage"
My dns is also being re-directed when I try to go to bleepingcomputer.com.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.
