My wife's computer has at least one virus. Vista Anti-Spyware, as well as one of those redirect google search hijacker things. The computer has been blue screening often, with various error messages.

On start-up, multiple programs (MSN, googletalk, etc) are showing the description SWBH4454f in Task Manager. I ended those processes before running MalwareBytes. IGT.exe was starting up every time we tried to open an internet browser (firefox) or anti-spyware, but after booting to safe mode and following the removal instructions here: http://www.2-viruses.com/remove-vista-antispyware-2010 including the registry edits, it seemed to work and MalwareBytes found several infections which it removed.
I just ran another MWB scan and it shows no infection.

Now we have no internet connectivity in web browsers. I tried resetting proxy settings, to no avail. Can someone help?
