So I managed to download the virus stemming from antivirus systems pro. I removed the program as suggested by various forums with malwarebytes. Although it detected and deleted the random pop ups that accompanied the virus, I am now unable to connect to the internet. My wireless will not connect, it will only display "acquiring address". I know my connection between my modem and wireless is running fine because I am using my sister's computer to gain access to the internet to try to fix this problem because I have no connectivity.
I have tried system restore, and it won't work. I don't know if this is related, but my windows firewall is off and will not turn on. When I try to turn it on I get a message "Windows Firewall setting cannot be displayed becasue the asociated service is not running. Do you want to start the Windows Firewall/Internet connection Sharing (ICS) service" I click "yes" and it goes "Windows cannot start the WIndows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing Service".
I have found this same problem on a multitude of sites but CAN NOT get any good help. Please help me, I am incredibly frustrated and I have to use my computer to study for a test soon and it just isn't working. Thanks!!!!
