Originally, when I clicked 'Delete', the 'Fix Proxy' & 'Fix Host' became grayed out and could not be selected. Today, I ran Rogue Killer again and clicked 'Fixed Proxy'. "Fix Host' then became grayed out. I ran Rogue Killer again and clicked on 'Fix Host'. These two RKreport files are included here. As far as I can tell so far, my computer and the browsers are functioning normally.

Just realized that each run of Rogue Killer creates two RK_Report files. Here are the other two that go with my previous post.

Disable Spybot and Ad-Aware, they will both try to interfere!

Disable the proxy settings in Internet Explorer:
1) Under “Tools” in the browser tool bar select “Internet Options”.
2) In the “Internet Options” window that pops up, click the “Connections” tab at the top.
3) Click “LAN Settings” near the bottom of the “Connections” section.
4) If the “Proxy server” checkbox is marked with a check, click it to deselect/uncheck it.
5) Click “Ok” to close the “Local Area Network (LAN) Settings” window.
6) Click “Ok” to close the “Internet Options” window.
Reboot
Make sure "Proxy server" is still disabled under your LAN Settings.

After rebooting, if Spybot tells you your settings have been changed, tell it to keep the "NEW" settings.

Restore Microsoft Hosts file How can I reset the Hosts file back to the default?

Uninstall both of the programs
  • Spybot Search & Destroy
  • Ad-Aware

Use RevoUninstaller to remove the two programs


RevoUninstaller Free Version download For 32-bit OS
RevoUninstaller Pro 30-Day Trial Version download For 64-Bit OS

Double click Revo Uninstaller to run it.
From the list of programs double click on The Program to remove
When prompted if you want to uninstall click Yes.
Be sure the Advanced option is selected then click Next.
The program will run, If prompted again click Yes
when the built-in uninstaller is finished click on Next.
Once the program has searched for leftovers click Next.
Check/tick the bolded items only on the list then click Delete
when prompted click on Yes and then on next.
put a check on any folders that are found and select delete
when prompted select yes then on next
Once done click Finish.

Note   Note
If the free version of RevoUninstaller doesn't show the program you would need to download and install the 30-Day trial of RevoUninstaller Pro which will be able to remove 64-bit programs

Spybot has a 'hidden folder' ... Total uninstall: How to uninstall? | Spybot

Revo does not uninstall everything completely and you need to be very cautious using this uninstaller!

Systemlook was run and SystemLook.txt file enclosed. Spybot and Ad-Aware were disabled and I confirmed that Proxy Server was unchecked. I rebooted and restored Microsoft host to its default using Microsoft Fix it 50267. I ran Revouninstaller and deleted Spybot. I had to use RevoUninstaller Pro to delete Ad-Aware, all as per instructions.
