I recently had some extensive problems caused by a virus. I got most of it resolved, primarily by resetting and starting the applicable services. But two problems remain:
1) I have no connectivity to the Internet (DSL), and when I try to repair the IP address I get the error message "Windows could not finish reapiring the problem...". It pings fine, no problem there. I have SP3 installed. Everything works fine except this.
2) I am sending this message via my laptop, which is working fine, with one exception. It is set up in a network with the toher computer (desktop) and shares the printer.
But it won't print. The message is that the print spooler is not started. When I check the Print Spooler on Services, it shows it as being on "automatic" and started, on both the laptop and the desktop. I can't check on the shared name, for the same reason.
Any help is appreciated.
