Hi, I recently had spyware on my computer. I've used Malware Bytes for awhile now so I ran a full scan of my computer overnight, and the next morning cleaned the infections. When I restarted my computer it got stuck in an infinite boot loop. I repaired windows and now my computer is fine, but my Firefox google search is hijacked to go to something like search.search-go.net.

Also, I am having trouble with programs connecting to the internet. My internet works fine, but is a little sluggish. For example, I use World of Warcraft and when I start the launcher, it won't connect to the news server, but the game runs fine. I also have a program called Curse that needs to connect to the internet but can't establish a connection. I have a few other programs that use updaters, but fail to connect to the internet.

I know its the spyware preventing these programs access. Help? :thumbsup:


-Thanks

Alrighty, so the virus finally revealed itself as Antivirus IS. The problem is, I can barely run any programs now. Malware Bytes won't run, even if i rename it. It just says its infected and asks if I want to run my antispyware
