Hello guys, and happy holidays. I know you are all busy with your families so I will be brief and wait for my turn..

Okay, I have a similar problem like Mantidor who had posted about a redirect virus. I tried to get rid of it (Spybot, and several virus scans), but now I do not have internet. I also tried to rstore the computer to an earlier time but it says " it cannot restore because the disk needs checking" I checked the disk but sais the same thing again.

Now when looking at your solution to mantidor, I went to win32 drivers etc but could not find a afd file at all. Perhaps its better because my problem could be different and I may screw things up even more.

Anyway, please tell me what to do when you have time. Should I download the stuff he did and go through the same steps and post the logs?

Anyway, thanks again and health to you and your families!

PS: Since I dont have internet, I am not sure how to run a scan or download a utility for this computer to be scanned. Hpowever i do have a laptop that still picks up the wireless internet from the "bad" computer (!!), so that works.

Please download Farbar Service Scanner


and run it on the computer with the issue.

* Press "Scan".
* It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
* Please copy and paste the log to your reply.
