Selective internet connection problems after malware removal


Recommended Posts

Malwarebytes quarrantined malware and since then Windows no longer updates, Microsoft Secutiy Essentials won't turn on or update. Itunes program will not connect to internet. I am guessing files were corrupted by virus, removed by Mbam and then deleted. is a recovery point a way to reinstall missing/corrupted files, a reinstallation? How do i recover? I am on the net typing this on the machine, so it must be a networking issue, not a hardware problem. Thanks for any help. this was the site that did the damage. I downloaded their virus instead of audacity:   http://sourceforge.net/projects/audacity/

re: live link. I expected Malware operatives would want to study the virus. In quarantining the malware my software and funcionality was destroyed. Since the original post i have discovered that My recovery points have been ruined, too. That isn't what Malewarbytes should be about. How else would I get this info to them? If there is a virus input section, please send the link along.

Second I don't want anyone else to stumble into this viper's nest.

Very unlikely a virus. Have not seen any "new" virus since about 2012 probably normal malware threats. Please go into your logs folder. History --> Application Logs

Export to text files (not xml files) the last few Protection Logs and Scan Logs and we'll review what's going on.

Thank you
