I have a program called "Kodi"; In this program there is a feature where by I can watch live NHL hockey. I had to run Malwarebytes when I tried to download a fireplace for a screen saver on my TV. I got a load of malware. Now after running Malwarebytes to clean out over 500 threats and then a bunch more the second time running Malwarebytes. Now the computer seems to be clean because running Malwarebytes now shows no threats. However, now when I try to watch live NHL hockey, I can go through the motions but now I cannot connect to live NHL.

  • Please do not install any new software during the cleaning process other than the tools I provide for you. This can hinder the cleaning process. Please do not perform System Restore or any other restore.
  • Instructions I give to you are very simple and made for complete beginner to follow. That's why you need to read through my instructions carefully and completely before executing them.
  • Please do not run any tools other than the ones I ask you to, when I ask you to. Some of these tools can be very dangerous if used improperly. Also, if you use a tool that I have not requested you use, it can cause false positives, thereby delaying the complete cleaning of your machine.
  • All tools we use here are completely clean and do not contain any malware. If your antivirus detects them as malicious, please disable your antivirus and then continue.
  • If during the process you run across anything that is not in my instructions, please stop and ask. If any tool is running too much time (few hours), please stop and inform me.
  • I visit forum several times at day, making sure to respond to everyone's topic as fast as possible. But bear in mind that I have private life like everyone and I cannot be here 24/7. So please be patient with me. Also, some infections require less, and some more time to be removed completely, so bear this in mind and be patient.
  • Please stay with me until the end of all steps and procedures and I declare your system clean. Just because there is a lack of symptoms does not indicate a clean machine. If you solved your problem yourself, set aside two minutes to let me know.
  • Please attach all report using
    button below. Doing this, you make it easier for me to analyze and fix your problem.

  • Do not ask for help for your business PC. Companies are making revenue via computers, so it is good thing to pay for the repair.

I guess it doesn't matter anymore, I just tried my NHL live and it is now working normally. Your cleaning programs must have touched a nerve somewhere along the line.
Again, Thank you for your time and effort. Let's hope I don't have to interrupt your busy schedule again for a long time.
