So recently(last night) I fixed(by myself) the Srptm and Trovi malware. But after that I got an error on Safari, IE, and Chrome saying that they could not connect to the proxy server. I've tried going into the Reg Editor and Lan settings.I have also scanned the laptop with Norton Security Suite. There's nothing infected.The only way I can go on the internet is by using another user.I have a HP G70 laptop with Windows Home Premium.

 

(I didn't know which to post it under so I just chose this one)

 

Thanks!

Do you want to use a proxy?

What programs did you use to remove the adware/ browser hijackers?

I used Adwcleaner(for trovi) and Spyhunter(for srptm) then, today I scanned my laptop with Norton. When I went into the LAN settings the box for using Proxy servers is checked. I unchecked it but I know I can use it with proxy servers.

Use CCleaner to cleanup the caches, temporary files, cookies, etc. Pay attention while installing and UNcheck offers of toolbars...especially Yahoo.

No need to use the Registry Cleaning Tool and it has the potential to cause a problem if used.
