Hi, I think I have a virus on my computer infact I'm pretty sure I do, my internet connection has gone from wireless private home network to a public and unidentified network and I can't access the internet at all.


I downloaded RKill and ran it to kill all the nasties before running a full scan with Malawarebytes, this scan discovered a number of infected files including keys and a threat called Genmalicious IFW, once the scan completed I removed all of the threats and the laptop seems to be working better now, its not as slow but the internet is still not working, how do I go about fixing this?


Also how do I check that the virus/threat has been wiped from my laptop completely so I can feel safe using it again!


Any help would be greatly appreciated! I have so much on this laptop I don't want to lose :(
