    Certain programs won't connect to the internet

    Hey guys, Just thought I'd give you an update. I was able to fix it. I kept running scan after scan for a while and then used Autoruns to clean up my programs at start up. I went through the registry and got rid of a bunch of stuff that didn't do a clean uninstall. Then I used the...

    There were quite a few errors so i'm running it again. I'm currently downloading Chameleon and i'll check out the AV you mentioned.

    It's quite possible that there are more programs that don't work. Those are just the ones that i'm aware of currently. Yes, I've disabled the items on startup/anti-virus/defender and they were still not allowed through.

    I used the MBAM removal tool and did a clean install but it still won't update. I am familiar with changing the firewall inbound and outbound settings.

    It won't connect from my side. It gives me an error stating "Not ready. Please check your connection," which led me to believe that it was a proxy issue but I've set the computer up for no proxy.

    I'm using AVG free. I've used the remover tool to complete a clean install, disabled my AV, and it still won't connect to the update server. I'm running the scan for corruption now.

    MBAM didn't update. I'm still getting an error saying that it is unable to access the update server. And I'm still having the same issues with the other programs that I originally listed. Yeah, this is completely strange to me. It was working fine about a month ago and then one day I noticed...

    It just finished and didn't detected anything. I'll download, reinstall, try to update, and run it again.

    Adwcleaner deleted one folder, one file, and seven keys from the registry. I just installed this copy of Malwarebytes a couple days ago but I can give it another go if you suggest that I should. Thanks; I really appreciate your help!

    Certain programs won't connect to the internet

    Okay, so I've run adwcleaner and am currently running malwarebytes as admin in safe mode with networking. Should I be using safe mode without networking? I am in fact able to run malwarebytes just not update. It says that the last definition data base update is from 5/16/16. @Sandbox I found...

    I've tried to update and run Malwarebytes and Hitman Pro. Pretty much anything that I try to update won't update. I was figuring that it was an infection too but can't track down the culprit. I'll try Adwcleaner.

    Internet Explorer will not connect when it is run with or without add-ons. I am directly connected using a CAT5 cable. I am in the advanced settings for the Flash Player but do not see an Update Automatic button. The only options are "Delete All" which is under the Browsing Data and Settings...
