I'm having an internet issue that is making me want to pull my hair out. I was getting limited or no connectivity, and the troubleshooter was telling me it was having trouble automatically detecting proxy settings. This is a home connection so there is no need for a proxy, for starters, nor is there one in place. More recently since restarting the computer multiple times it is "claiming" to have internet access, but it does not. I'm still unable to ping sites like Google and Yahoo. I tried the following:

Removing McAfee with the removal tool.
Resetting Internet Explorer settings.
Winsock reset.
Removing any programs that could be causing conflict.
Tried a new network card, same issue.
Every computer in the house works on the network, except this one.
Confirmed that the computer does NOT have any infections by running TDSSKiller, Combofix, and Malwarebytes, all updated.

There's probably more troubleshooting steps I took, I'm not remembering currently.

I checked the Hosts file to see if anything fishy was going on, it looks normal. The one thing that DID stand out to me was my FSS log file, which stated that my localhost is being blocked. Any help would be appreciated. I've attached the FSS log file for anyone that wants to view it.

The machine is Windows 7 x64 Home Premium.

Since you have already run Combofix, please follow the instructions in ==>Malware Removal and Log Section Preparation 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.

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