Dang it, as careful as I am, I got with the Security Suite spyware bug. I followed the advice here: http://www.myantispy...ninstall-guide/ and it appears the spyware is gone but I can't get on the net. This one system on my network won't connect and I can't get passed it. But, I also can't access anything on my network but other system s on the network are fine. This one system has the standard red x on the network icon and all the standard tricks aren't working. I could see not accessing the internet but not the network. It's not a hardware problem as it was working fine up to the bug.
If it is proxy related, everything I've tried hasn't worked. Other scans show no spyware (do you ever know for sure) and I wanted to try to get this working before I went to a recent disc image.
Also, restore didn't work either.
Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi there let me see what you have

Posted Image GMER Rootkit Scanner - Download - Homepage
[*] Download GMER
[*] Extract the contents of the zipped file to desktop.
[*] Double click GMER.exe.
Posted Image
[*] If it gives you a warning about rootkit activity and asks if you want to run a full scan...click on NO, then use the following settings for a more complete scan..
[*] In the right panel, you will see several boxes that have been checked. Ensure the following are UNCHECKED ...
  • Drives/Partition other than Systemdrive (typically C:\)
  • Show All (don't miss this one)
    Posted Image
    Click the image to enlarge it
  • Then click the Scan button & wait for it to finish.
  • Once done click on the [Save..] button, and in the File name area, type in "ark.txt"
  • Save the log where you can easily find it, such as your desktop.
**Caution**Rootkit scans often produce false positives. Do NOT take any action on any "<--- ROOKIT" entries
Please copy and paste the report into your Post.


Download OTL to your Desktop
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • Select Scan all users
  • Under the Custom Scan box paste this in

    %systemroot%\*. /mp /s
    %ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Start Menu\*.lnk /x
    %systemroot%\system32\config\systemprofile\*.dat /x
    %PROGRAMFILES%\bak. /s
    %systemroot%\system32\bak. /s
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\WindowsUpdate\Auto Update\Results\Install|LastSuccessTime /rs

  • Click the Quick Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
  • Post both logs

I very much appreciate the detailed help you provided. However, after way too many hours of tempting fate, I decided to use my 3 week old image and restored my drive. Things are well now.
You do a great job helping many here and I'm sorry to have taken up your time.
