Solved Binkiland.com disabled all 3 browsers?

February 27, 2015 at 09:56:25
Specs: Windows 7
I had downloaded some webcam program from cnet.com, it additionally installed some other stuff. After this internet explorer and firefox stopped connecting to the net. Chrome was still connecting. I assumed it had something to do with chrome so I uninstalled chrome

IE and firefox still weren't connecting and then i noticed both browsers were saying, unable to connect to "binkiland.com". So then I discovered binkiland.com was a browser search malware, I did what was recommended to remove binkiland.com from both browsers, didnt find it anywhere in the "Add or remove programs" section.

Now the problem is when I try to re-install chrome, it says cant connect to the internet. So now there is no connction to any of the 3 browsers and it all started ever since binkiland.com got in the computer.

I havent read any information about binkiland.com preventing an internet connection. Chrome was working, IE and firefox wasn't. Reinstalling chrome was unsucessful as reinstalling it requires an internet connection.

My guess is there's nothing wrong with the internet connection as chrome was working fine until i uninstalled it. The internet connection bars show as connected to the internet. No malware detector scan has found any problems either.I have unistalled everything from the remove programs section from the past month, nothing suspicious looking in the processes\application section in the task manager either.


What could be the problem? Thanks!

Why not just restore your computer to an earlier time before this was installed.

Here are the first 2 steps, there will be more steps needed after I see the results of these logs.

Run them in this order.

Step 1: Run AdwCleaner

Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart.

✔ Best Answer
Next time you install a piece of software, look to see if there is a custom install button. Click on it By doing so you may stop installation of things that you don't need or want. For example tool bars or asks to change you browser's homepage to a certain website. All can be unchecked there so they won't install on you system.
