Hi.
My browsers, Explorer 7.0 and Firefox both doesn't connect to about half of the websites I tried.
The problem doesn't not occur in safe mode.
After looking around for solution, I found a case similar to mine, and the solution to it.
It was to open up msconfig, find dll files in startup panel that was created around the time this problem came about.
I located two of them in system32 folder with random names such as qnxteln.dll.
I deleted them, replaced them with a txt file with read only.
After i rebooted, the problem seemed fixed until it returned.
After checking msconfig, I found that 2 more dll files had been created under different names.
I ran spybot but could not located the virus that was causing this reckage.
So i was just wondering if anyone had a similar problem and if so the cure for this.

Thanks in advance

I wanted to add that this problem came about after
I removed xp antivirus 2008( that was a pain in the butt).
Also I've been getting random-popups(that only seem to come up when my parents are around me and cause some embarrassments). Any solution to this maybe?

Hi, welcome to TSF

What software did you use to remove the "XP Antivirus 2008" trojan? It looks like you're still infected. Simply deleting the dll files won't fix the problem as the virus is self-replicating and hidden in more than one location.

Also, solutions for similar problems rarely work, because there are so many variables that are unique to your own situation.

Please follow these instructions (5 pages) and post the requested logs in a new thread here.
