Well, here is how it goes, so I'm on my computer and I'm unable to access the internet application wise, I start up steam... "Cannot connect to internet", I start the World of Warcraft launcher, "Cannot connect to internet" I try to update my anti virus programs "Cannot connect to internet" thing is, I have perfect signal and can explore the internet on IE, I clearly have internet access because I'm receiving packets and I'm able to explore the web on IE, so I get a crap load of windows updates... update.... now I cant even explore IE, so my internet on this laptop is broke, as what I thought... so it makes me beleive that it is a malware problem for the following reasons 1. I can explore the internet and get no problems in Safe Mode (I'm on safe mode writing this to you guys) 2.A little bit ago, when I would boot up the command promt would appear for half a second. and 3. I have been getting redirects on IE to malware sites so, I have Hijackthis and everything I need and everything set up that I can think of, so you guys can help me. Please please please please! help me with this!
