First, I want you to flush the dirty DNS cache and restore Microsoft's Hosts file:
Copy and paste these lines in Note pad. @Echo on pushd\windows\system32\drivers\etc attrib -h -s -r hosts echo 127.0.0.1 localhost>HOSTS attrib +r +h +s hosts popd ipconfig /release ipconfig /renew ipconfig /flushdns netsh winsock reset all netsh int ip reset all shutdown -r -t 1 del %0
Save as flush.bat
to your desktop.
Double click on the flush.bat file to run it.Vista and Windows 7... right click the .bat file and choose to run as Administrator. Your computer will reboot itself.
After you have done the above,

to see a list of programs that should be disabled.
The list is not all inclusive. If yours is not listed and you don't know how to disable it, please ask.
If your anti-virus or firewall complains, please allow this script to run as it is not malicious. Next: Disconnect from the internet.
If you are on Cable or DSL, unplug your computer from the modem. Next: Please disable all onboard security programs
(all running with back ground protection) as it may hinder the scanner from working. This includes Antivirus, Firewall, and any Spyware scanners that run in the background.
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while its running. That may cause it to stall Please be patient while the scan runs, at times it may appear to stall.
- Double click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
- When finished, it will produce a log for you.
When finished and after reboot (in case it asks to reboot), it should open a log, combofix.txt
Post this log in your next reply After rebooting ensure your Security applications have been re-enabled.
