OK, I need some major help with my computer.
Two weeks ago, I was affected by the AntiVirus 2010 Security Centre bug and it has been all down hill from there.
I have run Malwarebytes anti malware, Super Anti Spyware, Ad aware, and avg free and I am still having problems.
I am having problems connecting to the internet thru IE8. I keep getting the message that IE cannot connect. to the webapage.
Most of the time I can hit the refresh button and it will then load. Also sometimes, I get a second browser opened and a "consumer news online" website pops up.
I also see in the task manager, that I have alot of svchost.exe processes. A couple seem to run even when the computer should be idle.
One last item, when i boot up the computer, I get two error messages telling me that two seperate files can not be located.
Can someone please help me get this fixed.
I saw a similar post and read it but I did not want to run any program that I should not run.
I am using Dell GX260 with WinXp with IE 8
Thanks in Advance.

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.

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.
