    Ok, I dont know if something somewhere in my configurations were messed with but none of the search engines I go to work like Yahoo or Google etc.

    I got both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator and Ive tried both the Yahoo Search engines and tried to search random things like anime related things or tv shows and it doesnt work. I end up with some sort of error. Google's site doesnt even load up for me.

    Can anyone help me find out what may be causing this problem?
    I got another pc in the house and the search engines in the other pc works just fine so maybe this is Network related or Internet Config problems?

    Im able to browse just fine and get into sites but Search Engines like Yahoo, Google, Lycos etc arent working.

    Oh god! I was infected with this crap?!
    Anyways thanks im trying to clean this mess up now.

    Can you elaborate this a little bit more? Does this mean they want me to delete the thing that says "ProxyEnable"=" ?

    Also I ran the FixQhost.exe and it deleted whatever it needed to be deleted. So now all I have to do is change my registry entries back to the way they were right?
