Recently, Windows will not let me access the internet on XP. I haven't changed anything, I just activated MBAM Pro, and installed SAS. Now I can't connect to any page. I can access my router configuration page, and nothing is blocked. I can also ping the router, but I cannot ping any websites. I'm typing the internet on xPUD right now, and the internet works. Any tips, or is it reformat time?

Can you bring up a command prompt and type in ipconfig /all and post the results here.

Within the last 5 weeks...you have posted a number of issues, including a malware thread which was not resolved (doesn't appear to be your fault, lack of proper response by BC personnel).

I would suggest that you initiate a new topic at BC Am I Infected Forum and lay aside the possibility that your system problems do not have malware as chief contributor. If you elect to do so, post back and indicate that's the route you have taken and I will close this thread.

If you go that route, please read/follow the rules/suggestions in that forum for ensuring prompt attention/resolution of suspected issues.

FWIW: Malware often change user ability to connect to the Internet, changing connection settings to use a proxy. You may want to check your connection settings as they exist right now. Typically, the box should be unchecked.

That was complicated. XD I had to save it to a notepad file, put it on a flash drive, transfer it to another computer, and post it to pastebin.

@hamlius
I'm sure I'm not infected. I run weekly Vipre scans, and run a MBAM quick scan every 3-4 days. It's just my bad habit of downloading random crap off the internet and installing it without much regard if it might screw up my computer or not. My computer is set to automatically pick IP an ip address for me, and HijackThis shows no sign of a proxy.
