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!!!!!!!

Since you ran 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.
