interestingly enough, my internet explorer now does not load any pages. so i don't know if the ESET scanner will be possible. i tried downloading the program as it suggests for people with other browsers, but that did not install correctly. is there an alternative?

also - after rebooting, luckily there was no popup from antimalware doctor. however after running mbam, the same 2 infected files came up - (and i had it remove them, again). so i guess it's not completely gone, it just doesn't give me popups at startup anymore

thanks for your help

Please open up Internet Explorer.

Go to Tool's > Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings.

Uncheck bypass a proxy for local addresses and uncheck use a proxy server for your lan.

Then click on ok at the bottom.

Close out of internet explorer then reopen it and try the scanner one more.

IF it does not work let me know and I will give directions for something else.
