Dropper trojans caused loss of networking

July 21, 2010 at 12:43:56
Specs: Windows Vista
I came back from vacation and my laptop wont find a network, cant connect to the lan. Network connections wont open.
I started in safe mode with networking--the laptop connected to network with no trouble--and did a restore back about two weeks, at this point I also did a scan with MalwareBytes---it found several trojans and a dropper.
Now when I try to login to my admin I get a wallpaper nothing else. I can login to another user account---but still no network and other programs are not loading normally.
Thanks in advance for your help.

you may have had some malware that reset your connection. Open IE and click on tools/ internet options/connections/lan settings and uncheck proxy server. See if that gets you back on-line.

Then run some virus and spyware checks starting with Malwarebytes.

thanks for trying but, I dont think thats going to work because my machine cant locate a network at all. So its not settings in explorer/firefox, right? Also I cant get antivirus to run now, avg, malwarebytes give errors.

I installed spywareblaster, then tried to run Malwarebytes again, and got an error code 714 (0,9). Went to the malwarebytes support, they have a solution but it sounds sketchy to me. I am running this machine in safe mode but no anti virus programs will start. Can anyone help?
