First of all id like to say hi to the bleepingcomputer forums and to thank you for being here and answering all our off the wall questions. The problem I am currently experiencing is that of a particular internet blocking virus? So ive been having issues with my internet constantly dropping this week and having to reset my network in order to get connection, but as of today things got more complicated. The computer in question is a business computer i have in the garage that is connected wireless which i thought was the problem. I've always used a cisco usb wireless card and after not being able to connect no matter what i do I swapped to my netgear with no better result. What im getting is that no websites load up, so i keep getting "cannot connect to X website" but for some reason among the many sites i visit i can still connect to facebook. I can log in and do all the things i normally do so this ensures i am indeed connected to the internet but nothing else works. Ive tried Rkill, scanning my Nod32 and CCleaner and nothing is being picked up. I tried using hijack this and it seems to have found something but i cannot remove that 1 file in question.

The other peculiar issues im experiencing is upon booting in safe mode my computer locks up and when running disk cleanup it get to the point of removing the scanned temp files then loops to the select drive menu. I also noticed nod32 sometimes enables gamer mode for whatever reason... Ive had this internet blocking happen (minus the peculiar issues stated) on two computers within the same week but it was a fake antivirus program and because of it forcing me to download x program i was able to pinpoint the issue and find a removal guide, but this seems to be another best in itself. The other issues i could possibly think of is an unstable wireless connection but my ipad and other wireless devices are running all the sites/internet just fine. Ill be dragging the computer in question inside so i can directly connect and see if this is a wireless card issue shortly. Any suggestions?
