Windows 7: Trouble Using Browsers After Running Malwarebytes

Trouble Using Browsers After Running Malwarebytes

Hello! I'm having a bit of trouble trying to remove malware from my computer. I have ran the virus scanner MalwareBytes and removed all of the PUP bugs it suggested removing. Most of them seemed to be browser-addon related, so I removed them. However, after doing this, IE, Firefox, and Chrome all stopped working.

I am able to ping websites via the Command Line, and I can connect using a few other applications, however I am only able to either get to one page and then it cuts off, or not at all. After updating Firefox, I was able to get to and navigate around there, but it was still extremely spotty. I'm trying to download a registry repair program, and am having trouble with that.

The applications that were related to the stuff I removed with Malwarebytes were: Wajam, Montera, SweetIM, WeCare, Conduit, SweetPacks, Mindspark

I believe its simply residue from the removal of these things thats causing the problems

I have attached the initial log. any suggestion helps!

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

Please avoid all automated registry repair applications. They often do more harm than good.

Others more experienced than I can help you with the cleaning up the computer. In the mean time, you might try resetting IE using these steps: Internet Explorer - Reset

Welcome to Seven Forums bolharr2250. Often after malware removal, the internet (and other things) can be damaged. You will want to confirm that all infections have been removed, but if your internet is working it will make it easier for you. See if this helps you, you will obviously need another computer to download, as you are now to view this?

1.) Download AdwCleaner by Xplode and save to your Desktop.
  • Double click on AdwCleaner.exe to run the tool
  • Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Click on the Scan button.

  • After the scan has finished, click on the Report button...a logfile (AdwCleaner[R#].txt) will open in Notepad for review (where the largest value of # represents the most recent report).
  • The contents of the log file may be confusing. Unless you see a program name that you know should not be removed, don't worry about it. If you see an entry you want to keep, let me know about it.
  • Upload the contents of that logfile in your next reply using the paper clip on the reply box.
