Hello. I ran combofix as well as I could. It seemed to clean up a lot of the problems that were plaguing my computer.
Anyways, in the tutorial on how to use it, it said that CF would disconnect the computer from the internet but would bring it back when it was done. I'm not sure what happened in the process but when the computer rebooted my clock was still in a different format and my internet could not connect. I tried running combofix again to see if it would do anything, and still nothing.
When going to network connections and hitting 'repair' I get an error message that says "Failed to Query TCP/IP Settings of the Connection. Cannot Proceed"
I really hope that someone can help me with this. Thank you.

Sorry to hear about your PC problems, and sorry that you seem to have gotten no help so far. I'm not an expert on these things so you should definitely seek an expert to help you but I'm going to throw out a couple of terms that you might want to search the forums for in case it helps you:

- winsockfix
- lspfix

Hope you find someone that can help out.

This topic hasn't been answered because it's about Combofix and it cannot be discussed in an open forum.

If chamished still needs help he should post in the HJT forum. for expert advice.
