Browsers and websites corrupted by v5.0.7.5261


Recommended Posts

So i've just finished rebuilding my win7 x64 - all shiny and new with latest updates, drivers, a few progs, etc.

its all perfect. exactly how i like it. all working great. no errors anywhere.

 

before i take an image the last step is to clean out some crud/tempfiles, so i use my trusty prog ccleaner.

BUT

its all gone wrong. Now many websites wont open at all, others are messed up.

 

IE11 and Firefox (latest versions)

 

duckduckgo.com wont show at all.

bing.com shows a few boxes but doesnt work

 

how do i fix this?

 

And what else has ccleaner corrupted?!

So i've been trying to fix this....

 

After many hours reading/researching/screaming... i understand that i have some kind of virus.

But NOTHING catches it - superantispyware/malwarebytes/norton/avast/etc.

 

So i've done a fresh install of Win7x64, followed by ccleaner 507.

 

And everything is fine.

 

So i guess it wasnt ccleaner.

its so weird. i just cant figure out how or what started all the mess. oh well.

Ccleaner does NOT enable the tickbox for 'use a proxy server'

 

It's always a good idea to make a system image just after installing a new OS in case of issues further down the line.

Out of all those I'd imagine at least one of them would've found something if the system was infected or compromised.

 

You could've had some Windows problem giving you the issues and sometimes in that instance the Event Viewer Log may give the one and only clue to a possible solution - especially if anti-virus, anti-spyware, anti-malware software deems the system is clean.
