I had a malware/spyware (not sure) called IEEXPLORER.EXE that caused popups on my computer under the guise of Internet Explorer (IE's executable file is IEXPLORE.EXE with 1 E).
I removed it using Ad-Aware 2007, or so I think? I might have removed it using HiJackThis! -- I'm pretty retarded.
Okay, so now the problem is I cannot connect to the internet via my normal account, I can through Safe-mode, but that's it.
I've scanned my computer for viruses and removed some stuff but nothing's working.
WTF is wrong? This is irritating me. Everytime I try to do a system restore it fails, it won't connect to the internet and it's got some weird Internet Gateway thing on my connections that I can't delete and was never there before...
I've tried everything: Deleting the Winsock reg, etc.
Right now I've been able to logon the internet using my main account after doing a full scan in safe-mode on Ad-Aware, but now Norton is bring up pop-ups in regards to trojans and files trying to connect to the internet that I've blocked via the firewall.
If you still can't connect after being cleared by the HJT Team, they'll send you back here and we'll help you to fix it.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
