As far as how the computer is working. It seems to be running smooth however wireless internet isn't working it just keeps saying acquiring network address and it won't let me repair or disable. i found this out when i was trying to update combo fix on a previous step. It was able to update with an Ethernet connection. That's about all i have done so far so not sure how everything else is working. Should i start running any programs to look for anything?

I want to focus in on any issues remaining before doing our cleanup steps!

Please delete your current copy of ComboFix and download a fresh copy and run it. Then test your internet and let me know if wireless is restored.

Regards,

Step 1.

Clear the Java Cache by following the instructions here


Then you will need to reconnect to the internet. At this point update Norton virus definitions and update MalwareBytes' then go on to step 2.

Step 2.

Update Java

Please download JavaRa to your desktop and unzip it to its own folder

Run JavaRa.exe, pick the language of your choice and click Select. Then click Remove Older Versions.
Accept any prompts.
Open JavaRa.exe again and select Search For Updates.
Select Update Using Sun Java's Website then click Search and click on the Open Webpage button. Download and install the latest Java Runtime Environment (JRE) version for your computer.


Step 3.

Update Adobe Reader

Recently there have been vulnerabilities detected in older versions of Adobe Reader. It is strongly suggested that you update to the current version.

Uninstall all previous versions.
Download the latest version from: http://www.adobe.com.../readstep2.html

If you already have Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition installed or do not wish to have it installed UNcheck the box which says Also Download Adobe Photoshop® Album Starter Edition.


Step 4.

Defrag Hard Drive

Click Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Defragmenter
Highlight your C: drive then click the Analyze
Once the analysis is done click Defragment
