Ugh, I even have to retype this because my internet cut again as soon as I hit the post button.
To sum it up, I just (hopefully) got rid of my "DNS Unlocker" virus a few days ago but the computer now has connection issues. I have three antivirus programs (Avast, Malwarebytes, and Spyhunter) currently installed and none of them detects any trace of the Malware left on the computer (though I suspect it to be).
A basic breakdown of my computer:
-Gateway Veriton M430
-AMD Phenom II X6 1035T Processor, 2.60 GHz
-8.00 GB of Installed memory (RAM)
-It's a 64 bit operating system
-It requires an external network adapter, which I use a Linksys Model No. WUSB6300
For the removal of the virus I booted in safe mode, removed it in any browsers where it appeared as an extension, and uninstalled it in control panel. After looking for any abnormalities in my Processes (which I could find none, even when looking at all users' processes), I eventually just opted to install Malwarebytes and use that which seems to have fixed the problem (though DNS Unlocker still appeared on my Firefox so I just uninstalled that browser).
As for what I've tried previously for my current internet issues:
-Changing DNS server to 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206
-All solutions in the website http://www.selectrealsecurity.com/fix-internet-connection which recommended me here
-Using various Command Prompt functions
-Farbar Service Scanner (Which detected no missing files)
-Installing SpyHunter to look for any trace of the virus left (which it did not find).
-Restarting the internet modem
-Changing my external adapter to another port.
-Other various methods that elude my mind
All of these (except Farbar) seemed to provide temporary solutions, but the more I used them the less effective they became. I really don't want to have to resort to backing up and wiping, if there is a different solution please tell me.
