Antispyware 2012 and DHCP problem...


Recommended Posts

First off, I want to thank everyone for the help and suggestions I'll hopefully get. It is very much appreciated.

The problem started last night while browsing the internet using Firefox. I got the dreaded windows security/antispyware 2012 attack. With all of it's multiple pop-ups. I've dealt with this problem twice before by using Malwarebytes or Microsoft Security Essentials. I usually start my computer in safe mode with networking, do a sweep, restart, and it's all good. Not this time. The virus isn't seeming to go away. After multiple sweeps with both programs, I can't seem to kill. Worst part is, I seemed to have disabled my internet connection! I'm stuck on "identifying". When I restart Windows normally, the virus comes back, once I close out all of the pop-up windows, I ran a network diagnostic and it said there was a problem with the DHCP. The worst part is, it's not letting me do a system restore either! It's very very stressful.

Here my specs

1.) I use MalwareBytes and Microsoft Security Essentials. I currently cannot access my firewall.

2.) I'm using a router to send signal to a laptop in the same apartment.

3.) I currently have MalwareBytes installed.

4.) The last time I was able to update was 10 days ago. No internet access at the moment.

5.) I've run multiple scans and get the same four things. I delete them and they seem to come back.

I'm using Windows Vista.

Please help!
