Windows Web Commander disabled Internet access

My computer was infected with Windows Web Commander recently. I was able to remove the malware using a combination of combofix, malwarebytes anti-malware and rkill. However, since I ran these scans and successfully removed Windows Web Commander, I found out that I have no longer access to Internet. Could it be due to the scan or the malware have disabled my Internet access before it was eliminated from my computer?

I have tried several procedures to reset proxy settings on my Internet Explorer but to no avail. My Windows hosts file is also cleaned, so I cannot think of any more ways to fix this issue. I am sure that Internet connection works fine in my place. I can use my mobile devices to access the Internet so I am certain that this is PC problem with Windows Web Commander.

If you can share me some points to recover my web access please do it now. I need to access the Internet for my work.

Thanks,
Davis

    Maybe Windows Web Commander is not yet fully removed from your computer. But that’s just my guest. Anyway, you may try this.

    1. Google RogueKiller program. This is a free tool that is very similar to malwarebytes, however, it has an added feature.
    2. Download and install the program.
    3. Run it and when it displays the interface, click on ProxyFix and DNSFix that you can find on right sidebar of RogueKiller.
    4. I also suggest running a scan with this program.

    The least thing you can do is to remove the driver for your Wi-fi or LAN card. To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Click on Start > Run > type devmgmt.msc in the box and press Enter on keyboard.
    2. It will open Device Manager for Windows.
    3. Click on Network Adapters.
    4. Right-click on your LAN Controller and click Uninstall.
    5. Do the same on your Wireless device.
    6. Restart Windows.

    After restarting Windows, it will install a fresh copy of your network device drivers. It replaces the corrupt one.
