Greetings!

Working on removing the Antivirus Scan on my daughters Toshiba/Satellite running Vista. On regular start-up I can connect to the internet but get the general redirection to the rogue antivirus site. Also, unable to run any programs.

I am following the directions from Bleeping Computer to boot up in SafeMode Networking. My wireless connection indicates that I am connected but I am unable to connect to IE in either SafeMode or Safe Mode Networking. In SafeMode it indicates I can not diagnose connection problems. The signal is showing excellent and even when I try to establish a new connection it idicates I'm already connected but no webpage comes up.

Any suggestions on where to go from here?

Thanks!

Ok I messed around with the proxy settings and I'm able to connect to IE. Proceeding with the Antivirus Scan directions.

Latest update: I followed the steps for removal and it lasted about 48 hours. The Antivirus Scan is back. I'm going thru the steps again to see if it makes a difference.

Any suggestions on what to do if it doesn't??

Thanks.
