I recently became aware of multiple infections on my laptop, these were Questscan and Open Cloud Security. There may have been others, but I didn't see their effects. To clean my PC, I tried to use MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (MBAM). However, every time I started a scan, the program would close after a few seconds on it's own accord.
I searched the internet for answers as to how to solve this and stumbled by BC offering support to people that appeared to be in similar circumstances. They were instructed to use ComboFix. So I took it upon myself without research to download, install and run ComboFix on my laptop. It found multiple infections (Have the log) and to the best of my knowledge, cured them.
After I ran ComboFix, I tried to scan with MBAM again. This time, it successfully completed an entire scan. It found the Questscan malware and cured it to the best of my knowledge. (Have the log)
Next I ran TDSS Killer by Zaspersky. It found two infections cured one, and removed another by my choice. (Have the log)
This is where things went bad. Between these three programs, I hadn't tried to access the internet. After their completion I tried accessing the net, but I couldn't establish network connection. I tried repairing the network and flushing things left, right and center to no avail.
I again looked towards the net for solutions, found two fixes that I thought may be relevant. LSP fix and Winsock fix. I ran both and again tried to access my wireless network, but it wouldn't connect. I changed the network settings from automatic DNS/IP assignment to manual and entered the information. I was able to connect to the network, but I didn't recieve any packets whenever I tried to access the net.
And now you're up to date with where I am now. I know I'm entirely responsible for the predicament I'm in now, (particularly the use of ComboFix), and am requesting advice as to how I can get access to my internet. I'm using a house-mate's PC at the moment, so delays between responses might be a factor.
Thank you for reading and in advance of any help you may be able to offer.
