I am certain that my Internet problems are resultant from a virus that I had downloaded. A friend and I determined that the virus was a Sirefef variation.
Whenever I try to connect to any website in any browser aside from Internet Explorer x64 (Chrome, Firefox), the page will not load, and in Chrome, I get the following:
This webpage is not available
The webpage at <any url here> might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Error 137 (net::ERR_NAME_RESOLUTION_FAILED): Unknown error.
Firefox does not give any error message, aside from stating that it cannot connect to the webpage.
I have run: MBAM (found some things; removed), TDSSKiller (found nothing), Microsoft Security Scanner (found some things; removed), and SUPERAntiSpyware (found nothing).
When attempting to update, MBAM displays this error:
I have tried "netsh winsock reset" and a few variations, and none have worked.
My firewall seems to be bugged, but I do not know how to fix it. I think that this is a result of the virus.
Sorry if this is lengthy or anything, but I'm sorta desperate to get this fixed. Thanks in advance!
So far, nothing has worked. I've been able to update MBAM, and it found a few extra things, but to no avail. I'm gonna burn the SP1 update to a disk and load it to see how that goes, but I'd rather not reset a bunch of things and have to update them.
