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 192.168.0.1 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.
