Let me start from the beginning:
I was infected with a trojan csrss.exe virus a day or so ago. I knew it the moment I clicked the link from Google that it was bad news. I immediately closed everything and ran MalwareBytes, which found two infected files, and attempted to remove it and restarted my computer. Everything seemed fine for a period of time, and then I realized I was getting Google redirects. And also, eventually my firefox browser lost it's connection and would tell me the proxy it was configured through wasn't available. I do not use a proxy on my computer, so I figured my virus was still hanging around. I rebooted in safe mode, and then ran MalwareBytes again. This time it found 8 infected files (still the same csrss.exe) and removed them and restarted. Since then my browsers have connected no problem.
However, now the problem is - other programs I try to run can't seem to connect to the internet. But some can. My skype has worked fine this whole time - but if I try to run a game that connects, it won't. I have since tried resetting my router, which didn't help. And then I downloaded and ran TDSSKiller using the tutorial here. It found one file in the System32 folder, sptd.sys, which I had the option of skipping, copying to quarantine, or deleting, and I just skipped because I wasn't sure to do.
I'm at a loss of what to do next, as certain programs of mine still can't connect to the internet. I appreciate the help.
