I need some help!! My internet provider is Comcast Cable(broadband) and I can not get on the internet. Normally, I cut on my computer, I click on the Comcast icon located on my desktop and it takes me to comcast.net. Now, when I click on that icon, I get "page not found". I tried other web sites, same thing. The internet is connected because I ran a "ping" and everything checked out. I just can't go to any webpages. Any ideas on what to do? Thanks!!!

Hi Wrayven1, and welcome to TSG.. :)

Could you please download 'Hijack This!' from http://www.spywareinfo.com/files/hijackthis.zip
Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan". When the scan is finished, click "Save Log", and copy and paste it in a reply.

This will give us a rundown of what’s going on in your PC. One of us here will be glad to analyse it for you. Don’t fix anything yourself yet, as a lot of the stuff on that list will be harmless or required.

It's a small program, so as you can't use your PC to download it, go to the working machine (I assume the one you posted here with) and save to a floppy, then run the scan on yours, and save that scan to the floppy to repost on the computer you're using. :)

Cheers

Liam

No, I didn't call Comcast because I don't think the problem is with the cable. My computer is connected via a 2 way splitter, the cable out of the wall runs to the splitter, one goes to my computer, the other to the back of my TV. The TV works fine.

E-Liam: I will follow your directions and post the results here. Thanks a bunch.

Hi Wrayven,

First, could you go here.. http://www.webattack.com/get/cwshredder.shtml and download, then run CoolWebShredder. Then run a new HJT scan, and check to fix the following items. (some may not be there after running the above) ext close all browser windows, and click the Fix checked button...

The red entry can be the result of using the immunize feature in Spybot. If this is not the case, then please include in the fix.

Next could you please reboot into safe mode (see here for info on this) and delete the following bolded files/folders. When you have Windows Explorer open, please go to Tools | Folder Options | View (tab) and make sure that the Show all files radio button is selected.

C:\Program Files\ClearSearch

C:\Program Files\ISTbar

C:\Program Files\Bargain Buddy

C:\WINDOWS\winshow.dll

C:\WINDOWS\iedll.exe

C:\WINDOWS\loader.exe

Then reboot back into normal mode and download Spybot - Search & Destroy, from www.tomcoyote.org/spybot : if you haven't already got the program.

Now press Settings, and Settings again. Go to the Webupdate section, and check "Display also available beta versions".

Now press Online, and search for, put a check mark at, and install all updates.

Next, close all Internet Explorer windows, hit 'Check for Problems', and have SpyBot remove all it finds marked RED.

Then reboot once more and post a new log just to check it's all gone.

Cheers

Liam
