I was infected by fake spyware that falsely posed to protect my system. I was only allowed to access online by being directed to their website. I went on a different computer, successfully downloaded Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, and put it on my infected computer. When I first ran it, it detected the malicious infection and quarantined it. I no longer have the annoying pop-ups and am not continuously redirected to their website every time I try to access the internet. However, despite Malwarebytes' telling me I no longer have any infected objects, I still cannot access the internet despite my strong, connected internet connection. It simply states, "This webpage is not available" with "Error 102 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_REFUSED): Unknown error." Any suggestions??

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<==

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then post back here and we will provide you with further instructions.

Do not anticipate trouble, or worry about what may never happen. Keep in the sunlight.
