Hello all. I am a new poster to this forum, but have browsed here several times in the past for help and have often gained that help, so thank you for the past submissions, and I hope you can help me now.

I am working on a Dell Dimension 4400, XP Home SP3. I do computer technical services, but this particular PC has cost me way too much time. It originally had Win AntiVirus Pro 2009 on it, and I managed to get rid of it with MalwareBytes AntiMalware. The core problem I have now is that TCP/IP is not functioning, and thus the PC can't get on the Internet (so no downloads, etc. I have to use a flash drive to transfer files.) Here's what I've tried to-date:

Removed and reinstalled TCP/IP with modifications to C:\WINDOWS\INF\NETTCPIP.INF to allow the uninstallation.
Did a repair install of XP Home, then reinstalled SP3
Managed to get AVG 8.5 installed, but without the link scanner. Scan found a few odd entries, mostly tracking entries, but the removal of all doesn't help.

I've googled quite a bit and tried various suggestions, but no help.

Booting with Ultimate Boot CD for Windows will let me get onto the Internet, so I don't have a hardware issue.

Spybot S&D won't load, though I managed to get it to install by renaming the installation file. When the icon is clicked, a brief black & white text box (DOS looking box) pops up, then immediately disappears with no program load.

I had to rename the HiJack this installation (HJTInstallation.EXE) to get it to install. These have been tell-tale signs of an infection to me that is blocking the installation and running of some programs.

Here's the HJT log:

I see a suspicious entry under Browser Helper Object "wormRadar", but I don't know enough about these entries to be sure I'm not causing more damage than I'm trying to fix. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

Please close this post.

I had a rootkit virus that involved the file UACD.SYS. With the help of the GMER rootkit detector, I seem to have gotten rid of it. Anyway, the computer is now functioning okay. I didn't mention it earlier, but Disk Defragmenter wouldn't start / run either.
