hi guys, im new here. im having problem with my internet connection, idk if its a virus or what. Anyway, the story was this: well, i was playing an online game then all of a sudden it brownout, lights went out then after a couple of mins the lights went on again so i turned on my PC again then play with no problems at that time, then a couple of mins, the lights went out again and after 30mins lights went on again then i played with no problems at that time. after an hour of playing, i shut down my PC and went to bed. in the next morning i woke up then turned on my PC then i have found out that i cant connect to google or any other websites even though my Local Area Connection tray says i am connected perfectly but as i've said i cant browse any web page neither can't run my online games or even YM messenger. but when i tried to hook up my cable to the laptop it was working that is why i was able to write this now.. please help and thanks in advance..

OS: windows XP home edition
AV: AVG free edition and Malwarebytes

Malwarebytes was able to detect security hijack and deleted it but still didnt work same with avg, i ran full scan with avg but doesnt detect any infections..
