OK lets now look at the net

Open an elevated command prompt

Go Start and search for command.exe
When the file appears right click and select "run as administrator "
A black box will open

Type in the following commands pressing enter after each :

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release 
ipconfig /renew


Reboot and then try the network

Hi Essex,

Would Hitman Pro help? I know it does more then "Malware". I know it wipes all cookies and everything. Would that speed the browsing time up a little bit?

You could try Hitman Pro. For browser garbage to remove check the settings of your browser, there is an option to erase all browser data.
(But careful it also erases passwords when its checked to do that)

Be careful with hitmanpro and do not let it delete anything that looks like a system file

Skype was modified is what he's trying to say. The Border surronding it (Like anything) has been changed. Making it look fake.

hi again it's bailey I thought I should tell you that I re-installed Skype and it does not have the weird looking stuff any more and it still does not work. Also I'm still getting the icon glitch for everything but folders.

OK lets try and reset the permissions.  This may take a while dependant on how many registry changes the malware made


Download Windows All In One Repair from Here to your desktop
Install the programme and run.  Windows and Avast may try to block the programme but allow it to run as it is safe.



Select step 4 and create both restore point and registry backup



Select the start tab and press Start



Select all the items indicated in the list below and also tick the restart on completion box



Then press the start button and prepare to be bored for a while.  On completion let me know what problems are still apparent

I'm out of town right now. I'll notify Bailey when I get back which is 3 ish hours... Thanks
-Michael

Edit: Bailey just told me the Net isn't slow anymore. However, since it's late he's not online (I saw messages from when I was offline). Now just to fix the icons. -Michael

Edit #2: Hey, I just got Bailey started on tweaking repairs. I'll get you the info you need when it's done
