Internet Connected, But Won't Load Anything

Recommended Posts

I just got done removing a virus from my desktop system, and I was instructed by a specialist to run Combofix during the removal process. After I ran combofix, I restarted my desktop, but now I can't connect to any webpages, skype, etc, even though it says I'm connected to the internet in the bottom right hand corner. I'm also connected to the internet right now on my laptop, which is how I am posting this.

I already tried unplugging my router/modem and let them unplugged for a minute or 2, then plugged it back in and nothing changed.

I made sure that my IP/DNS was set to obtain automatically.

I tried to do 'ipconfig /release' and 'ipconfig /renew' in cmd, and still nothing changed.

I also tried to use the "winsockfix" that I've been seeing a lot about when searching this on google.

I checked my hosts file, and it is blank.

Please help me!! I've been trying to fix this for 3 hours now and no luck.

Thank you for the help
