There is something wrong with the proxy server, or the address is incorrect

Jul 26, 2018
Windows 7

2 Or so days ago I was hijacked out of my steam account. After getting the account back the first thing I thought to do was run a anti virus scanner.

After a quick google search I soon found myself using malwarebytes. Unfortunately after running said scanner every single browser I have ran with the error"There is something wrong with the proxy server, or the address is incorrect. " not only that I can't even go online for things like steam and other online game services.

Thinking Malwarebytes did something wrong I panicked and quickly uninstalled it.

I have since then installed avast and have scanned with it multiple times. All scans came up with nothing.

First time posting here thanks for being patience with me and for all the work you guys do!
