1.  Cleaned up virus/malware with MalwareBytes

2.  Rescan came up clean with MalwareBytes and AVG

3.  After cleanup, IE browser could not access google.com & yahoo.com, but could access any other website attempted

4.  Chrome browser had no issues with google.com & yahoo.com

5.  Host file (C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc) was clean

6.  Ran combofix

7.  IE issue was resolved, IE could now access google.com & yahoo.com

8.  Rebooted

Prior to reboot, even with virus, the I had no issues with Ethernet or WiFi.
