Hello all,

I recently removed a virus named trojan.vundo following the instructions here on someone's post. I got to the link via search engine.

Now even after removal of the virus ( or atleast malwarebytes anti malware claims so! ) I am not able to access internet via chrome or safari or use my ftp client.

But I am able to use to GTalk, IE, and Mozilla.

What could be the problem?

Please advice
Thank you

Welcome to Bleeping Computer agentcris,

Please read Using LSP-Fix to remove Spyware & Hijackers and download the LSP-Fix from it's download location.

LSP-Fix is a utility designed to remove and repair problems associated with a a type of software called a Layered Service Provider, or LSP. LSPs are designed to integrate directly into your TCP/IP layer, the protocol you use to communicate on the Internet, in order to manipulate data that is sent across it. The LSPs are installed in such a way that each LSP in the TCP/IP handler are chained together. If one of these LSPs is removed incorrectly, that chain could become broken, possibly removing your ability to connect to the Internet or a network.
Because you just want to fix a broken chain, click the Finish button, (designated by the green box in Figure 1. of the Tutorial).
LSP-Fix will automatically fix the LSP chain and hopefully restore connectivity back to the network.

Or you can try Winsock2Fix, if that fix didn't work .
When you run it, click on ReG-Backup button first to backup the registry, and then click on the Fix button.

Credit to fellow Mod boopme for the above.

Here's an article on how to do it:

WinSock XP Fix can cure the problem of lost connections after the removal of Adware components or modifications of the Winsock settings.
Sometimes your Internet connectivity will get corrupted due to invalid or removed registry entries.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
