Hi all, long story short i was trying to clear up and the crap you aqquire after time and one of my main problems was 8 svchost.exe one of which using 24MB memory and sending off a million internet signals

having searched on the net i found the combofix program and read the guide as per this website
after doing it all i then had 'limited to no internet connection' displayed on my network icon (cable modem connected via ethnet)
i tried to 'repair' but ass it said was - unable to repair....renewing ip address, tried to disable but same message and in the status it said 'aqquireing ip address'

i re-installed drivers uninstalled drives change the pci slot nothing worked.

after trying a 'roll back' windows freezes out on the loggin off screen or shut-down screen and also on the welcom/start up screen.

I'm pretty sure i dont have admin rights even though i should as it is my computer so i think thats a virus?

I've got combofix log if that will help?

Its XP machine

Oh yeah also, i created a new user account with admin rights and after that it flashed up saying non-genuine version of windows, which is also rubbish cus it is.

has anyone got any ideas for a fix or should i just bight the bullet and re-install windows?
But if i do that will it clear all the reg entried and files and everything?

Sorry its not very informative post i'm struggling to remember everything i've tried
Please bare with me for replies as obviously, i've no net connection.

cheers anyone
