I removed combofix, and was checking Windows Update. My PC was set to check updates automatically. But when I clicked on the little 'flag' incon on bottom right of taskbar, and clicked on Windows update on the left pane, I saw the last update was done on 15th, that's when I had the virus attack. When I clicked to check for updates, I am not able to do it. I get his message:
An error occured when checking for new updates.
Code 80072EFE

So I clicked on the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] update link above and got the white error page:
IE cann't display the webpage.

I think I need more directions here. I have Kasperksy 2010.
I went to Protections\Firewall
On the right side are two options:
Setting- Click Settings button to configure allowing and blocking rules for data transferring according to direction, protocol,port and distinations address.
Rules for Application Statuses-Configure Rules.

When I clicked on Setting there are 3 tabs:
Filtering Rules, Networks, Resources

There is no Rules for Application tab for MS updates.

Disable Kaspersky Firewall and see if you can update windows. See site below:

Be sure to set it back when you are done.

I disabled Kaspersky fireweall and it still didn't work.
Anything else I can do?
Also my PC in general has gotten slower at times. Other times it works fine. But at times it "thinks" too much, even when I am not on the Internet. During those slow times it 'blinks" one or two times before returning to normalcy. Could it be due to the installation of different programs trying to get clean my PC?
I also have Kaspersky on my laptop and I have no performance issue.

Hi,
PC has gotten a bit faster, still testing it out. But Fix It did not work when I tried to run it both from the website and by saving on my desktop.
Error Message:
Fix It Center Setup encountered an error.
An unexpected error has occured. Please close and try to run setup again later.

I will try at a later time, hoping it would work.
Thanks

Still the same issue as above, on top of it have search engine redirect error.
I have been using yahoo, when search for something, the list of result is displayed. But clicking on any result, redirects me to a different website, very annoying, so using google now, so far works.
I will run full scan tomorrow for malwarebytes, maybe it will pick up the search engine errror as it did before.
