can't access google... suspect DNS
Posted on 2011-03-03
one of our staff has got themselves a nasty malware infection. I've since removed it and the computer is functioning ok again except google (and yahoo).
It doesn't matter which browser is used, google "can not be found" and yahoo loads, but no search results work.
If i ping the urls, they resolve to something quite different from other PC's in the office.
I thought, maybe the malware put a dummy proxy in - nothing found.
So maybe it changed the hosts file - all looks normal.
So i did ipconfig /all - settings (except ip) are identical to the other pc's.
So i did ipconfig /flushdns - didn't help.
Where else in Win XP (SP3) can settings be changed to cause these problems?
