Did you have help from Malware Staff? If not then it is possible you may still be infected.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

I had the same problem after cleaning an infected computer, it had trojan horses and spyware but I dont know what caused DNS to stop working.
I got it back to work after doing the following:

Open CMD:


netsh winsock reset catalog then Press Enter.
netsh int ip reset reset.log then press enter.
When finished restart your computer.

good luck
