Go to control panel/network connections/properties/under the options tab look at the third box down in redial options make sure it is set to Never

The third box down is "Idle time before hanging up"

your virus fixer cannot remove the virus in system restore and that will reinfect the pc immediately. Switch on and turn off system restore and then run your fixer - that should do the trick. If necessary keep hitting F8 as you start to go into safe mode and the virus will not disconnect you.
