Hi everyone:

I hope someone can help me. I have broadband service (through a cable modem). It worked fine up until a few days ago, when I removed the Accoona tool bar, now I can't get to my email or any site that requires a password like my online bill pay or internet bank, etc. I have tried to do everything on the start page but some of them required an update and it wouldn't me finish. I downloaded the AVG anti-virus and ran a deep system scan that found I had a Trojan (BACKDOOR.VB.11.BC), I deleted it and then ran the deep scan 2 more times and it said there were no more infections. I also have run spysweeper, and tried to run the Ewido full system scan, but it gets about 90% finished and then shuts down and I can't run the updates because I can't get to the internet site, it's the same way with Microsoft, can't run updates from there either. Now I am getting an error message that says - Socket error #10061 connection refused. Does anyone have any ideas how to fix this error. I can get to any other website as long as it's not secure.
I called my internet provider and he said that my internet was configured correctly and I was connected to the internet.

Thanks for anything you can tell me.
