A couple of weeks ago I was infected with that nasty Win 7 2012 anti-virus, virus. I followed the removal instruction found here on Bleepingcomputers.

Everything seemed fine for about a week, then to my shock and awe, it was there again. I removed it again. The very next day it reappeared and I once again followed the removal instructions. After removal the third time I noticed I would occasionally get redirects on Firefox. Not every time, but sometimes. And sometimes I would just be sitting on a site and all of a sudden get a redirect. This is when I noticed I can't set my firewall. I get an error saying "Windows Firewall can't change some of your settings. Error Code 0x80.70424. When searching google I see this a lot, but not found any sound solutions.

I must either still have some infections or I'm picking them up because my firewall is not active.

I've run Malwarebytes (updated) and Ad-Adware scans each time it finds objects after I have been on the internet. I've run it/them in safe mode and normal mode.

Thanks in advance for all your help.

Man... I never EVER post on these websites.. I searched for a good hour before I finally came up with a solution that worked (all of microsoft, you guys, everywhere)........


2 seperate solutions.. The first one did the trick for me after numerous failed attempts from Microsoft Repair tools.
