    Unhappy :banghead: Unable to download skybot

    I recently had Skybot installed but now it has stopped working. I have tried to reload again but i get the message "A connection with the server could not be established".

    I am not a computer genius but i would really love to have Skybot back as i keep getting pop ups. Also, i am unable to download from microsoft and i'm unable to do a system restore.

    Thanking someone in advance.....

    I have included my Hijack this file:-

    Hi upfront,

    You've got dnschanger infection there and it prevents you from getting Spybot updates.


    Please visit this webpage for download links, and instructions for running ComboFix tool:

    http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/comb...o-use-combofix

    Please ensure you read this guide carefully and install the Recovery Console first.

    The Windows Recovery Console will allow you to boot up into a special recovery (repair) mode. This allows us to more easily help you should your computer have a problem after an attempted removal of malware. It is a simple procedure that will only take a few moments of your time.

    Once installed, you should see a blue screen prompt that says:

    The Recovery Console was successfully installed.

    Please continue as follows:

    1. Close/disable all anti virus and anti malware programs so they do not interfere with the running of ComboFix, link
      Remember to re-enable them afterwards.

    2. Click Yes to allow ComboFix to continue scanning for malware.


    When the tool is finished, it will produce a report for you.

    Please include the following reports for further review, and so we may continue cleansing the system:

    C:\ComboFix.txt
    New HijackThis log.


    A word of warning: Neither I nor sUBs are responsible for any damage you may have caused your machine by running ComboFix. This tool is not a toy and not for everyday use.

    Hi,

    It's good to hear things are better However, I recommend you post the logs I asked for. That way we can be sure there isn't anything else lurking in the system.

    Hi,

    If you ran ComboFix earlier as I instructed then please provide ComboFix.txt contents too (should be in root of c: drive or in c:\combofix folder). If you didn't run, then please let me know that.

    Hi

    Yes, that's ok. No need to run ComboFix if there's no problem Anyway, let's do some cleaning and updating first and then do one system scan with Kaspersky online scanner.


    Disable Spybot's TeaTimer to make sure it won't interfere with fixes. You can re-enable it when you're clean again:
    • Run Spybot-S&D in Advanced Mode
    • If it is not already set to do this, go to the Mode menu
      select
      Advanced Mode
    • On the left hand side, click on Tools
    • Then click on the Resident icon in the list
    • Uncheck
      Resident TeaTimer
      and OK any prompts.
    • Restart your computer



    Start hjt, do a system scan, check (if found):
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = about:blank
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,SearchAssistant =
    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Search,CustomizeSearch =

    Close browsers and fix checked.


    Uninstall old Adobe Reader versions and get the latest one here or get Foxit Reader here. Make sure you don't install toolbar if choose Foxit Reader!
