Hello...
I removed the Vista Security Virus about 10 days ago. Or at least I think I did! I did not have internet connectivity and ran Rkill, ComboFix etc. and it came back. Was fine for a week and now, just yesterday, NO internet again! I tried everything I did before and I have nothing. Very frustrating!

Can someone please help me?


Thank you so much.
