I currently have this posted on the Windows XP Home and Professional forum:
This is my first post.
My problem began when a warning popped up saying that I have the Win32.Zafi.B trojan which I believe I already removed.
I was then online and whenever I click on a link, it goes to a totally different site and I noticed in the processed in task manager that svchost.exe is coming up a lot. I went to boot up in safe mode and did a regedit and did a find on svchost and began deleting them. When I rebooted again, there's a beep and it takes so long for Windows to complete loading. A lot of my programs that are trying to access the internet began giving me lots of error messages. I could do a copy on a file or folder, but I am not given a paste option. I cannot connect to the internet with either Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox. When I'm on Windows Explorer and click on Search, the search menu doesn't show up on the left, only the dog assistant shows up. I tried doing from task manager, run, sfc /scannow, but that didn't do anything. I've tried booting with the Windows XP CD, but i couldn't figure out what to do.
I did sfc /scannow
Here's what seems to be a pertinent error:
RegisterClassObjects failed hRes = 0x800706BA
The RPC Server is unavailable.
