Ran Malwarebytes, Now Can't Connect to Internet

Recommended Posts

I believe I have successfully removed a virus with with malwarebytes, however, I am now unable to connect to the internet. I am almost certain that it is malwarebytes that has caused this. I have tried for over 24 hours now to get correct this problem with no luck, I have completely run out ideas.

When I try to connect to the internet, it just stays on acquiring network address. I have read dozens of similar posts about this problem but have yet to find a solution.

Things I have tried to fix this

-reinstalling driver

-making sure internet protocol tcp/ip properties are on automatic

-making sure lan setting are on automatic

-running several different functions from the command prompt

-ran combofix (can post log if needed)

-ran windows recovery console

-ran Winsockxpfix

-ran GMER

-ran Hijackthis

What could be the problem? I have logs for the programs above.

Any thoughts are appreciated.
