So some days ago i got a Virus, a fake antivirus program named something like Windows security. so i did a scan with my malwarebytes anti malware, and it found about 3 infected files that i removed...
Doing this time i was still on IE surfing, and when it was done scaning i tryed to change wepsite but it said that it " IE cant find wepsite" i tryed rebooting, scanning with McAfee, installing firefox and google chrome.
It looks to me like the Virus changed some settings, and i cant find out what. T_T

please help me

Open Internet Explorer. Click Tools > Internet Options > Connections > Lan settings > Proxy server > Advanced > delete proxy server settings > click OK > uncheck all boxes > click OK.

In Firefox, click Tools > Options... > General > Advanced > Network > Settings > delete proxy settings > select No proxy > click OK.

In Google Chrome, Select > Tools menu > then "Options", then go to "Change Proxy Settings", then "LAN Settings", then take out the check mark for "Use a proxy server for your LAN" if set, unless you set this up yourself.


Then,

Please click HERE to download and install HijackThis.

Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile from the Main Menu.

The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

IMPORTANT: Do not fix anything

Thank u.... I talked to some other techs too and they all agreed that it was a proxyserver problem, I didnt do it that way but nice to hear that there is more than 1 way to do it.
I guess the Virus turned on the proxyserver or something the only thing I needed to do was turn it off agine, very easy...
thank you very much

You're welcome!

There's also the HijackThis method. That's why I asked you for your log... :)
