Hi,

This past sunday I got one of those viruses that infiltrates your computer when you access a website link trying to watch free online videos of tv shows. I'm usually pretty good at protecting my self but this time around I wasn't so successful.
I got one of those fake antivirus prograsm with alerts and warnings of a bunch of viruses. Once I saw it "scaning my computer" I tunred it off and restarted it in safe mode. Then I ran combo fix to see if it would get rid of it. It did, but something went wrong because now even though I can log in to my Instant messenger, I can't get to any webpage using chrome or internet explorer. My connection Is wireless but i have my own router, I know is not the ISP because I can still access xbox live. So, I'm pretty sure that the virus broke something when being removed that wont allow me to reach the internet even though the AIM works fine. Any thoughts on how I could fix it. I would apreciate it.
Thanks,

Virtualtaker

Try these and also reset your router:
