Currently on a Dell desktop. I recently had some malaware and virus issues so I had geek police help me out to clear some stuff. After performing all the procedures they recommended, such as combo fix and tdskiller, I lost Internet connection. Everything was fine before. I tried so many methods such as unplugging the router, resetting the win socket on cmd dos, uninstalling and installing my wireless drivers, trying to use my ethernet as an alternative, but none of those worked. I came to a conclusion that there must be some kind of virus or Trojan that's blocking my access to the Internet. My wireless network is fine because I can connect to it on My other laptop, my Ethernet is fine as well because it also works. Help!!!

When the laptop successfully booted up and w/out ethernet connection, it will naturally look for wireless connection or pre-shared keys(PSK) configured on security passwords and settings. Now once it is discovered, connected you browse then what happens from there? Any messages or erros posted?

Since you have previously run ComboFix you have two choices. One is to continue the help you received where you were told to run combofix or follow the directions below.

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include the link to this topic in your new topic and a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs. Be sure to mention you were advised to run ComboFix elsewhere.

Once you have created the new topic, please reply back here with a link to the new topic.
