I am not sure if this is malware or not causing the glitch.. when I try to access google.com on IE 8, IE cannot display the page? but will display yahoo.com, bing.com, dogpile.com, etc but not google.com??
When I run chrome all sites appear, as well as firefox too. Btw, I am running windows xp.
HELP?

Hello LizMerrill and :welcome:

My name is Bruce1270 and I will be helping you with your malware problem.

Please Note: I am still in training and my fixes have to be approved by my instructor so there may be a slight delay in my replies. Look upon it as a good thing though in that you have two people looking at your problem.

A few things before we get started.
  • Please read all instructions carefully. If there is anything you do not understand please ask me first before doing anything.
  • Please be patient. I am a volunteer who does this in my spare time so I will try to get back to you as soon as possible.
  • Please follow all instructions in the order given.
  • Please do not install any other software unless advised. This may hinder the removal process.
  • At the top of your post, please click on the "Follow this topic" button and make sure that the "Received notification" box is checked and set to "Instantly" This will send an email to you as soon as I reply to your topic, allowing us to solve your problem faster.
  • Please make sure you reply within 4 days to my responses, if there is no reply within 4 days, the topic will be closed and you will need to request the topic be reopened.


    Important!

    Please save or print off these instructions. Part of this fix may require you to be in safe mode where you will not be able to access the internet or my instructions!

    I would strongly recommend you back up your personal data and folders before we begin.

    Malware removal can be very long, complicated and may take multiple steps. I understand this may be frustrating but please stay with this topic until your machine is declared clean. The results will hopefully be very rewarding. :happy:
    As we go along please tell me how the computer is running now. Please be as descriptive as possible e.g. I'm still getting web redirects, I am unable to access the internet etc.

    OK. Let's move on.

    First I need a scan of your system using FRST. Please follow the instructions below.


    Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your Desktop.
    Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
  • Right click on the file and select run as administrator (if you don't have this option just double click the file to run it). When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will produce a log called FRST.txt in the same directory the tool is run from (this should be your desktop).
  • Please copy (CTRL + C) and paste (CTRL + V) the FRST.txt log back here.
  • The first time the tool is run it generates another log Addition.txt - also located in the same directory as FRST.exe.
  • Please also paste that along with the FRST.txt into your reply.
    Note: Please do not attach any logs unless specifically requested. It's easier if you simply copy and paste them into your reply. It's OK if you have to use more than one post to do so.

    Thanks

I reset the TCP/IP automatically using, the auto fix below for windows xp. It worked, was able to access google, but then 1 hour later after using firefox, went back to IE, and same problem with google?? What Gives?


You can try to reset TCP/IP if you have Internet connection issues. This article describes two ways to reset TCP/IP. To reset TCP/IP automatically, go to the "Fix it for me" section. If you would like to reset TCP/IP manually, go to the "Let me fix it myself" section.

 

Fix it for me

To fix this problem automatically, click the Fix it button or link. Then click Run in the File Download dialog box, and follow the steps in the Fix it wizard.

For Windows 8.1, Windows 8, Windows RT, Windows 7, Windows Server 2012R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2008R2

For Windows Vista, Windows XP, Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2003

Hi LizMerrill

It could be a multitude of things which are causing your issues. To start narrowing it down, what I would like first of all is an overall view of your system and we can get this with an FRST log.

If you can follow the instructions I posted in post #2 of this topic I can start to have a look. :)

Thanks
