Antivira AV Proxy Reset

Post by docksidr on Sat 12 Feb 2011, 3:51 am

Got infected with Antivira AV yesterday. Followed your instructions and was able to get rid of it (I think) this morning. Love you guys, nothing could be simpler. My question is this. I followed the instructions
below for Firefox and set it to "No Proxy" but could not get the IE instructions to work (wouldn't activate the Apply Button). Now that the Antivira is gone, what should these settings be reset to?

Follow these preparation steps:

Because Antivira Av sets your browser to use an invalid proxy, you will not be able to surf any websites.

If you are using Internet Explorer, click on the Tools menu and select Internet Options.

* Now click on the Connections tab and then the Lan Settings button.
* Under the Proxy Server section, please uncheck the checkbox labeled Use a proxy server for your LAN.
* Click the OK button. Then press the Apply button and then the OK button. Now that you have disabled the proxy server you will be able to browse the web again with Internet Explorer.

If you are using Firefox, click on Tools and click the Advanced tab.

* Go to the Network tab and select Settings.
* Select No proxy and click the OK button and click OK again. Now that you have disabled the proxy server you will be able to browse the web again with Firefox.

Download OTL by OldTimer to your Desktop.

  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.
