Specs: Windows NT

Got a bad virus on my PC. It pretty much disabled my interent access and couldn't get around it to download any new software.

Eventually I did and downloaded spyware doctor.

Still have a problem though.

Every time I try to use a search engine spyware doctor tells me:

'Blocked access to'

If I block, I get no results from my search.

If I ignore, I get results but the results page looks way different (same way it did before I ran new software)

Virus obviously still there.

tried to system restore but virus destroyed all snapshots pre-infection!

Would be very very grateful for any help.

I'll assume you are using Internet Explorer. Go into the settings, then connection tab, then LAN settings. Do you see any proxy server listed here? If so, what does it say?

Thanks for your post.

I checked - there is nothing listed under proxy server.

It is harder to help you if you can't get online. One thing you can try is killing any suspicious processes running on your system. CTRL + ALT + DEL, Processes, Malware usually uses very low memory, so look for something under 1000kb then End Process. Eventually you will kill off the malware and should be granted internet access.

1. Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.
2. Double click mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
3. Make sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
4. Select "Perform Quick Scan", then click Scan.
5. When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
6. Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
7. When disinfection is completed, a log will open in Notepad and you may be prompted to Restart.
8. The log is automatically saved by Malwarebytes and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab.
9. Please be sure to paste the content of this log file with your post.

Also if you could post your HJT log that would be great :)
