Windows 7: DNSChanger

DNSChanger

I apparently have that nasty Trojan (DNSChanger) attached to my browser (IE8). I've used Malwarebytes to remove it but whenever I go online I've got it again. Isn't there someway to permanently rid myself of this? I can not receive any Updates or access any security-related links and won't until it is gone.

I've had Jacee help me with the Update issue but until my IE Trojan is eliminated all her work is to no avail.

It's quite possible that your router is causing the problem. Reset your router's Password and the DNS.

We've flushed the DNS cache and restored MS's Hosts file more than once.

Jacee, your right, we have. As for my router I have no idea how to reset any of its values. A little guidance would be appreciated.

Have a pleasant Sunday!

Have you checked your proxy entries?
IE / Tools / Internet Options / Connections / Lan Settings / *Make sure the 'use a proxy server' is NOT checked*
