I need help. My computer was infected with tv wizard and other unwanted pop ups that I found and ran adwcleaner. I do believe it fixed the problem but in the process it knocked out my Proxy or something. I tried all the conventional ways I know to fix the problem but No Connection to the internet is the result. Can anyone out there help me?

Thank you for your time.
