I'm sorry, you are correct. I read it too fast

The removal of viruses and malware might have damaged certain key files
I would suggest SFC.exe
Seeing as you do not have a retail CD, pay attention to the second post where usasma talks about the i386 folder:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/235425/cannot-connect-to-internet/

I don't think i can resolve this problem without recovery disc,which is with my nephew,so if you wish you can close this topic,unless someone can come up with another way of solving this.

I would like to thank propagandapanda and yourself for the time and assistance you have given me,much appreciated.

Best regards pacman123

Hi keny111111,
Thanks for your reply, the laptop does have a partition but doesn't show anything on it,as i will be sending it back to him tomorrow i have printed the article in the link you have posted so if it asks for disc he can use that.

Once again thanks for your help,

Best regards pacman123
