Glad to hear you are not having any more malware problems other than the internet issue. Maybe I could help you or at least point you in the right direction. Do you still have the yellow or red exclamation points in your device manager that fireman4it asked you about?
That will be where we will need to look further if you still have those exclamation points. If you do, could you please give me the names of the devices under the network adapters that have those by them?
You could try using Winsockfix
. It will ask you to reboot so make sure you save all your information and close any open programs before you try and run it.
Let me know about the exclamation points and how winsock worked.
