i recently used adwcleaner everything was fine before that until i ran it to remove few ads on my browser but after reboot my couldn't browser anything all the browser says page unavailable or check your connection i am connect to LAN and wifi both has the same case.
Things I have tried are
tried winsock reset because the error i got after rebooting was windows socket failed
i also tried complete internet connection repair and also minitool box
But the problem persisted ..I dont know what is the error which is causing and also the proxy checkbox is unchecked under the adv.network connection  
I am using windows 7 home premium 
last but not least is that i can ping and it is working fine

Welcome to BC Alice001...


Find the AdwCleaner log that tells us what was found and removed by AdwCleaner.

Copy and paste it into your next post.

You should be able to find it at C:\AdwCleaner[S1].txt
