Malware or Mbam killed my IE

Recommended Posts

got a pretty piece of malware, so installed and ran the latest MBAM.

Either the malwares fracked up my internet connection on my little netbook, or MBAMs cleaning did.....I'm guessing it was the malware.

Here is a hand copied log of the removal from MBAM.

Then ran Network Diagnostics for Windows XP

Heres ITS handwritten log. (yay)

HTTP,HTTPS,FTP connectivity

FTP(Passive): Successfully connected to ftp.microsoft.com.

HTTP: Error 12029 connecting to www.microsoft.com: A connection with the server could not be established.

HTTP: Error 12029 connecting to www.hotmail.com: A connection with the server could not be established.

HTTPS: Error 12057 connecting to www.microsoft.com

HTTPS: Error 12045 connecting to www.passport.net: The certficate authority is invalid or incorrect

Cannot make an HTTP connection

Cannot make an HTPPS connection

DNS Client Diagnostic

DNS - Not a home user scenario

Using web proxy: yes

No DNS servers

DNS failure

And the rest just looks like my personal IP addresses. Correct me if I'm wrong, but no positive point in posting the rest of this log?

So There it is. I've rerun MBAM a few times to make sure that all the detected malware was gone, and i restored IE to its original factory settings, via the internet options, but i still have no internet. Any suggestions?

Hello specialk, :)

Just want to make sure: I have no issues with malware removal, i only mention them in passing, as they likely caused my PC issue of no internet connectivity....do you still want me to move this thread? Let me know, thanks!

You may want to try this -

(The first part can also be done in > Control Panel > Internet Options only if you can not open I.E.) -

STEP 01 - For XP

  • Open Internet Explorer
  • Note: It MUST be Internet Explorer, not Firefox, Opera, Chrome or any other internet browser
  • Click on Tools at the top and select Internet Options
  • Note: If you do not see Tools, press the Alt key on your keyboard and it will show up
  • Click on the Connections tab
  • Click on the LAN settings button
  • Under Automatic configuration make sure that the box next to Automatically detect settings is checked, if it is not, then click the box next to it to check it
  • Click on the OK button to close the Local Area Network (LAN) Settings window
  • Click on the OK button to close the Internet Options window
  • Use this diagram as a guide
  • Try updating Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware again and if it does not work then please proceed to Step 02


Disable Internet Explorer Proxy Settings and Reset TCP/IP

It is very important that these steps be carried out exactly as shown otherwise the fix will not work.

If you have any questions please ask before moving on.

  • Please start Notepad and using your mouse make sure you select and copy all the information below in the Code box into your new document.
  • Then save the file as "fixme.bat" to your Desktop - The .bat extension is important
  • In the drop down box for Save as type: make sure you select All Files (*.*) and keep the quotes on the name as well. Then close the new file.
    reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyServer /f
    reg delete "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyOverride /f
    reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v ProxyEnable /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
    reg add "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings" /v GlobalUserOffline /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
    netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt

  • On Windows XP you can double-click the file to run it.
  • On Vista/Win7 you need to Right click the file and choose Run as administrator to run it. With User Account Control on it should ask permission to run it. Click Yes
  • This will flash a black DOS box very quickly and go away, this is normal.
  • Restart your computer now.
  • Launch Internet Explorer and see if you can connect to the Internet.
  • Launch MBAM and check for Updates

If no joy, it is worthwhile to have a free check by an expert to make sure it is not malware related. (See my post above for the instruction.)

Thank You - :)

Edit - by the way, it is advisable to upgrade your IE to version 8.
