I was having moderate malware problems ("System integrity wizard" and "888toolbar") with no real loss of performance - until I stopped being able to connect to most sites.

The scenario is like this:
I have my computer connected to a home network via RF.
On my computer I can only access some pages (Like Hotmail and my homepage - some links in it don't work) - Most other servers cannot be reached (Like Google or Gmail) and I also can't update any of my AV or Anti-Spyware programs.

When using the internet connection on the main server-computer in my house everything runs well - so it's not the connection/ISP ...

I run Outpost firewall (recently installed) and I think I oblitirated most malware on my computer already (With a^2, Spysweeper, Adaware, Spybot, Xesosoft and Avast ... Also I removed the 2 "System integrity" enteries with HiJackThis ....

Here is my current HJT log:

I seemed to have solved the problem ...

My WiFi network DNS option was set to "Auto detect" - I fed in the DNS address listed in the server computer and everything seems to be resolved ...

Hope this helps others ...

Thanks for being here ...

Thanks for replying with the solution you discovered for your problem; it will certainly add to the general stock of knowledge here.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
