OK, here is the deal. I have finally removed thetrojan.dnschanger from my xp machine. It took about 3 tools and a lot of doing to get it done. have flushedhe dns, used the winsock tool, you name it. No matter whatI do, I cant get my machine to connect to he internet at all. Not on wireless, or if I plug direct into the lan. Nothing. It says it will not get a valid IP address back. Its a mess.

I have searched hereand tried everything suggested by others that worked. An ideas?

See if this fixes your Net issues .

Go to Start ... Run and type in cmd
A dos Window will appear.
Type in the dos window: netsh winsock reset
Click on the enter key.

Reboot your system to complete the process.

Did that too, nothing.

I also did a dnsflsh from the c:, another for restiing IPs, and the netsh winsock reset. Plus I used the winsock fixit tool as well.

A last guess. Have you reset the modem?
Unplugged it from wall and PC for 2 minutes,
Insert a pin in the small hole usually at the back.
Checked with your provider.
