I got a virus (Alureon) and finally was able to get rid of it, but I still have a problem.

I'll start my computer up and have no problems until I go to the internet, and then my screen will go black, and then back to normal. Then a little later the same, then sometimes it pixelates, and then finally it'll go black and I'll get "no signal" message from my monitor.

Here's the weird thing though. If I run Hitman Pro, when my computer first loads up, I'll get 2 messages that there's a "proxy server" and if I fix these at that time, I'll have no problems with my computer at all. If I don't run it (hitman) I'll have the problem.

I have updated my drivers on my video card, and now I'm stuck as what to do... any advice???

Thanks!

Hello, Try this--open control, internet options, connections tab, lan settings, uncheck the box next to "use proxy...."
OR
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 key.

Reboot your system to complete the process.

the "use proxy" box was already unchecked
and
I tried the second suggestion (Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd...) and I'm still having the same problems...

Any other suggestions?

These are the oyher things I know to try.

Please click Start > Run, type inetcpl.cpl in the runbox and press enter.

Click the Connections tab and click the LAN settings option.

Verify if "Use a proxy..." is checked, if so, UNcheck it and click OK/OK to exit.

Now check if the internet is working again.

<><><><><>

For Windows 2K/XP
Please go to Start -> Control Panel, and choose Network Connections. Then right click on your default connection, usually Local Area Connection or Dial-up Connection if you are using Dial-up, and left click on properties. Double-click on the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) item and select the radio button that says Obtain DNS servers automatically. Click OK twice, and restart your computer.

<><>><><><>
Change your DNS Servers:
  • Go to Posted Image > Run... and in the open box, type: cmd
  • Press OK or Hit Enter.
  • At the command prompt, type or copy/paste: ipconfig /flushdns
  • Hit Enter.
  • You will get a confirmation that the flush was successful.
  • Close the command box.

I have done this and the problem is still happening.

The "Obtain DNS servers" is not available for me to click. I see it there, but when I try to it won't let me.

I didn't do this because the former didn't work - should I still try?

Thanks for all of the help!

Okay, so I've done the first and last from the list above, and the 2nd one isn't available. I'm still having the problem.

Hitman has this for an error:
Proxy server on this computer (user) 127.0.1:5643
Internet Explorer is using a proxy server on this computer to connect to the Internet

It shows the above every time that I run it.

Hello, We need a deeper look to find what keeps resetting the proxy.
Please go here....
Preparation Guide ,do steps 6 - 9.

Create a DDS log and post it in the new topic explained in step 9,which is here Virus, Trojan, Spyware, and Malware Removal Logs and not in this topic,thanks.
If Gmer won't run,skip it and move on.
Let me know if that went well.

Hello,

Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/336954/my-screen-blinks-and-then-turns-off-residual-from-virus/ you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the MRT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the MRT Team members are EXTREMELY busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the MRT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another MRT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

Please be patient. It may take several days to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible. I advise checking your topic once a day for responses as the e-mail notification system is unreliable.

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.

Orange Blossom :thumbsup:
Help us help you. If HelpBot replies, you MUST follow step 1 in its reply so we know you need help.
