How is Trend Micro AntiVirus plus AntiSpyware blocking my internet

Hi Guys,

im working on a computer that is having trouble connecting it the the internet and opening webpages. ive narrowed the problem down to a copy of Trend Micro AntiVirus plus AntiSpyware that is installed. wen trend is on i cant open webpages (page cannot be displayed, in both IE and Chrome) is i turn off trend it works without a hitch.

ive checked the winodws firewall, it doesnt seem to be affecting the situation
the hosts file has no abnormalities
uninstallation is not an option an i dont really want to install any other antivirus software

does anyone have any ideas?
help would be greatly appreciated

Hi
Run autoruns.
In Autoruns:
Hit options and check "verify code signatures" and rescan (F5 key)
Don't make any other changes...

Within Autoruns,select the file tab and select save(Ctrl+S) and save as AutoRuns Data (*.arn) -Output file is a few megs in size
Once saved then right click autoruns.arn and rename to autoruns.txt to upload

changing the file extension may make the files unstable.  i made a copy before i made any changes in case i did something wrong

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Firstly,Mywebsearch spyware is on that machine

1-Run disk cleanup and Atf cleaner to clear temp files http://www.atribune.org/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=25&Itemid=25

2-Then scan with Malwarebytes(Mbam) http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam-download.php
When its scan is finished, close Mbams logfile and hit "remove selected".
If asked to reboot,do so.

3-Attach Mbam's logfile. To locate it, open Malwarebytes, select the "logs" section.

Thanks for that.
Run Eset online scan:
1-Check "scan archives"
2-In advanced options add check to scan for "potentially unsafe applications"

When completed attach logfile:
C:\Program Files\EsetOnlineScanner\log.txt

optomaCommented:
Since it got a few hits, delete it.
Reboot and test, although i don't think it will have any positive result on underlying issue.

Run this scanner. Its fairly quick and see if it finds anything:
Hitman Pro http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro

Whatever the results of Hitman are, reboot and test.

If still unresolved uninstall Trend (as mentioned above),reboot and reinstall Trend, providing you have your subscription details.
