Internet Connection not working after using KSMSpico.

Recommended Posts


I've run into an issue after I tried activating MS Office (I needed VISIO for an assignment) with the activator already mentioned in the title. I noticed my internet connection is not working anymore but I can still connect via mobile hotspot/Wi-fi (I'm using it at the moment).
I tried resetting the ethernet adapter which resulted in nothing.
I even tried to use System Restore and even that failed, giving me the following error: 0x80070005
I made sure my anti-virus program was disabled when I started the recovery.

My next step is to make a fresh Windows installation, which I'm very reluctant to do, so I'm writing here in hopes someone can help me.

My guess is that the activator .exe file was infected with something. I also noticed the "loading" circle appearing at random intervals at my mouse cursor.

If it helps, I've already attached FRST.txt file in here.

Hello Gotko and welcome to Malwarebytes,

Continue with the following:

Please download the attached fixlist.txt file and save it to the Desktop or location where you ran FRST from.

NOTE. It's important that both files, FRST or FRSTEnglish, and fixlist.txt are in the same location or the fix will not work.

NOTICE: This script was written specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system that cannot be undone.

Run FRST or FRST64 and press the Fix button just once and wait.
If the tool needs a restart please make sure you let the system restart normally and let the tool complete its run after restart.
The tool will make a log on the Desktop (Fixlog.txt) or wherever you ran FRST from. Please attach or post it to your next reply.

Note: If the tool warned you about an outdated version please download and run the updated version.

NOTE-1: As part of this fix all temporary files will be removed. If you have any open web pages that have not been bookmarked please make sure you bookmark them now as all open applications will be automatically closed. Also, make sure you know the passwords for all websites as cookies will also be removed.

The following directories are emptied:
  • Windows Temp
  • Users Temp folders
  • Edge, IE, FF, Chrome and Opera caches, HTML5 storages, Cookies and History
  • Recently opened files cache

Important: items are permanently deleted. They are not moved to quarantine. If you have any questions or concerns please ask before running this fix.

The system will be rebooted after the fix has run.

Post the produced log, also let me know if the internet connection is restored..

Thank you,
