Fixing a computer for a friend and ran malwarebytes. Cleaned everything mwbytes found. Thought everything was good but I cant access google.com. That seems to be the only site that is having problems. I was able to access it on ie with the url number, but can't access it all with google chrome. I also cannot use a search engine with google in the search. I get a cannot find page.
I have tried to go to the hosts file in windows/system32/drivers/etc and cannot find the "hosts" file is not listed there.
I just ran an old standby of spybot search and destroy and it is finding "microsoft.windows.redirecthosts" and "fraud.windowsprotectionsuite", but cannot remove them beacuse it cannot find the "hosts" file that I listed above. Not sure what to try next.
Thanks for any help
