Ok, I've already ran all the things to not be infected with a virus. What I did in order, removed the drive scanned with nod32, reinserted the drive, ran in safemode networking: spybot, malwarebytes, removed bad files, ran smitfraudfix, then combofix, unchecked things from msconfig, used hijackthis to remove bad things. Rebooted to regular windows, and cant get on the net. The system still responds but its almost like its having issues getting an ip or something. I also tried winsock fix, but it hangs also. Ive had this problem on two seperate computers. What I believe it to be is some registry problem or permission change by the previous viruses i removed. Please dont give me the usual virus scans etc routine. I've been doing this awhile I know how to get rid of viruses. This is separate issue, please help or point me in the right direction. I also had an issue installing avg with the error code 0x80070005, but i solved this by deleting the two DENYs in permissions. Do you think this is a similar issue but a different permission? Its not also a bad NIC card or anything like that because i used a USB nic and same thing, and also i am unable to do a system restore, yes the service is running, but it wont restore. Any help with this?
