started out with bogus proxy killing IE9 about 10 days ago. Malwarebytes finds pum.bad.proxy, says it gets rid of it, but keeps finding it. IE9 actually did have a bogus proxy, I cleared that manually. google getting redirected, ran "Fixing Google Redirection/Hijacking Problems" and it stopped doing that. DVD drives had (IDE) disappeared - uninstalled / reinstalled drivers, and they came back. SuperAntiSpyware finds nothing, Eset online scan finds nothing. MalwareBytes keeps finding pum.bad.proxy. Ran all of the removal steps. Problem now is trying to turn on windows firewall - get "Windows firewall can't change some of your settings. Error code 0x80070424" Trying to share a printer gets me an error " Trying to share a printer gets "printer settings cannot be saved, operation could not be completed (error 0x000006d9). Running rootrepeal gives me "could not load driver (oxc0000035)!". Tried windows startup repair - nothing. I must have accidently deleted my superantispyware log, but it found nothing anyway. Thanks in advance for your help.
