Had a laptop with some kind of virus/spyware issue..lots of redirecting. DId all of the cleanup, ccleaner, malwarebytes, avg, and a few others. Still no luck, ended up running combofix. System seems to be fine now with the 1 exception.. I cannot browse any websites in IE or firefox, by name.
I can browse to the site by IP. However, DNS is working. Pinging google or yahoo DOES resolve to the correct IP... I can access sites by IP.. however the browsers will not resolve.
I've repaired winsock / tcp/ip reinstalled my NIC, I can't think of anything else to do.
Its a win 7 box. Never seeen anything like this. Usually dns isnt working properly for this but dns appears to be fine. I tried google dns servers for the heck of it,s ame results.
Any help would be appreciated!!!!!!!
