Browsers don't work properly

Unread postby Arno » July 14th, 2009, 9:57 am

Hi there!

For a few weeks I've had trouble with my browsers. Every twenty minutes or so, Firefox can't connect to the internet. At first, I had to wait like 15 minutes before it worked, but then I made a .bat that automatically refreshes my IP 9 times and for some reason, that works. I just figured it had something to do with my provider. But now I just found out downloads, like usenet/rapidshare, continue.. So there is something wrong with my browser. I checked out Google Chrome and that's the same as Firefox, when Firefox is down, so is Chrome. Internet Explorer on the other hand, works sometimes and sometimes it just doesn't work. It's kinda random. And the homepage of Internet Explorer is hxxp://google.mini20.com/, I don't know however that has something to do with it.

I scanned with AVG, he found 4 infections which are removed/in the vault, but still the problem. Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware found 1 infection on the full scan, removed that also. But I'm still having the problem, so that's why I need your help. Anyway, here is the HijackThis log (updated it a few hours after this post, because of the policy against P2P!);
