    Hi Zerothma

    Drag mouse to highlight all within the box rt click and copy for pasting

    @echo off
    ipconfig /all >"%USERPROFILE%"\Desktop\ipconfig.out
    ;Saves ip settings
    netsh interface ip delete arpcache
    ipconfig /flushdns
    ipconfig /release *
    ipconfig /renew *
    ipconfig /registerdns
    nbtstat -RR
    netsh winsock show catalog >"%USERPROFILE%"\Desktop\lsp.txt
    ;saves log of current settings
    netsh winsock reset catalog
    ;resets Winsock
    netsh winsock show catalog >>"%USERPROFILE%"\Desktop\lsp.txt
    ;winsock after rest
    netsh int ip reset >"%USERPROFILE%"\Desktop\tcpreset.txt
    ;reset TCP stack
    Then open cmd prompt and rt click and paste to black screen.
    Depending on setting ignore errors

    The CMD screen will close.

    Reboot and try Internet.

    I'm not at home, but I'll put this in a text document for when I get there. If this works... Oh man, you have no idea how happy I'll be.

    Nothing is working. I tried Mikes comand prompt thing. I called verison and did everything they said. I bought a Linksys thing that connects you to the net. Nothing has worked. Should I go to another section of the forums, or will you guys help me here? I won't be mad with either answer, as of this point in time, my computer seems to be fine.

    Ok Kimsland. I'll try the updated 8 pointer. When I'm done I'll make a new thread, though this is more about my internet than viruses. I'll get back to you guys whenever possible. Thank you so much this far, happy holidays, merry Christmas, hanaka, kwanza etc. (and my apologies for the spelling errors).

    Yes it is time to start over! Your first MBAM log was horrific. I am surprised the computer ran at all!

    Another MBAM scan should have been run immediately.

    Refrain from browsing any where else on the WWW especially MySpace etc or running any instant messengers etc until clean or you may be bringing them in faster than we can fix them.

    And I would stay with this until clean.

    Do as Kim said and do the 8 Steps.

    Then do the below, it is for when MBAM and SAS will not run or update but it does much much more so do it anyway.


    When rebooted back to normal
    Update and run MBAM post log
    Update and run SAS post log
    Do post #24 Smitfraud again.



    NOTE: If you have had ComboFix more than a few days old delete and re-download.

    Get it here: http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/sUBs/ComboFix.exe
    Or here: http://subs.geekstogo.com/ComboFix.exe

    Double click combofix.exe follow the prompts.

    When finished, it will open a log.
    Attach the log and a new HJT log in your next reply.

    Note: Do not click combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall

    I appreciate the effort Mike, and I'll take everything you said into serious consideration. But I'm not connected to the internet at home. I use a flashdrive for transportation. My internet is mysteriously broken.

    That is OK! Do what you have to do.

    After you get them there and successfully run them you will be able to get back on.
