Hello, Hopefully this only needs 9 fingers. let's try a different route.
I take it there is still no internet.
For the connection....
Try this--open control, internet options, connections tab, lan settings, uncheck the box next to "use proxy...."
Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd
A dos Window will appear.
Type in the dos window: netsh winsock reset
Click on the enter
your system to complete the process.
If that worked... Download this file
and doubleclick on it to run it. Allow the information to be merged with the registry.RKill....
Please download Rkill
by Grinler and save it to your desktop.Link 2Link 3Link 4
Do not reboot your computer after running rkill as the malware programs will start again.
- Double-click on the Rkill desktop icon to run the tool.
- If using Vista, right-click on it and Run As Administrator.
- A black DOS box will briefly flash and then disappear. This is normal and indicates the tool ran successfully.
- If not, delete the file, then download and use the one provided in Link 2.
- If it does not work, repeat the process and attempt to use one of the remaining links until the tool runs.
- If the tool does not run from any of the links provided, please let me know.
If you get an alert that Rkill is "infected", ignore it. The alert is just a fake warning given by the rogue software which tries to terminate programs that try to remove it. If you see such a warning, leave the warning on the screen and then run Rkill again. By not closing the warning, this sometimes allows you to bypass the malware's attempt to protect itself so that Rkill can perform its routine.
If RKill won't run..Try this .... download iExplore.exe
, which are renamed copies of rkill.com, and try them instead.Do not reboot your computer after running rkill as the malware programs will start again.
Try running Malwarebytes (MBAM ) now. If this goes well,post the log.
If MBAM still fails Run SAS next and try again.

If you have a problem downloading, installing or getting SAS to run, try downloading and using the SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner
instead. Save the randomly named file (i.e. SAS_1710895.COM) to a usb drive or CD and transfer to the infected computer. Then double-click on it to launch and scan. The file is randomly named to help keep malware from blocking the scanner.
Another option is use another account and then run FixExe reg,Rkill , MBAM and SAS
Click on Start,
Then Control Panel
Click on Users
Create a new user account with Administrative Rights
Login as that user
Now run MBAM (MalwareBytes below) ,, Run a FULL
scan this will search all user accounts
on your machine.
Reboot your machine.
When your machine is at the login don't login into the infected account log into the new account
Logout of the new account once the machine finishes booting up.
Log into your original account that was infected. Post the MBAM log.
Hopefully we are good.
Please post alll logs and update me on how it is running.
