I have a machine which was infected with Windows Web Commander. I used rkill in safe mode so I could install Malwarebytes on there and it removed the infection. I then used combofix. Rkill said it had found a proxy setting and changed it.

However, since then I have not been able to access the web via any web browser. I have reset the proxy settings in "Internet Settings" and still no access.

Pinging hosts such as google.com works
The TCP/IP stack works because I can RDP to and from the machine
When I go to a website the titlebar will update to the title of the website and then just waits. For example, going to crucial.com the titlebar updates to "RAM Memory upgrade...." etc. This works on new sites so it's not pulling that from the cache. The connection never times out and never gets any further.
When I go to my router config page at it asks for username and password but never gets any further. If I enter an invalid username and password it is rejected.
I have tried a system restore, no joy there either.

You folks are my last hope before I give up and re-install the damn thing :)

Thanks in advance.

Hi since you have run Combofix...

Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<== starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

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.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.

Regards, dev00790
