XP Home SP3 laptop was infected with PC Antispyware 2010 and Protection System. I found manual removal instructions and removed what I could find from the registry and file system but missed something somewhere. Found braviax running and deleted that and then tried to install anti-spyware software but nothing will run. IE8 loads and crashes. Installed Mozilla but can't get anywhere. Can not get a DHCP address from my router (wireless) but a hardcoded IP works. Can ping external websites but can not open them in a browser. Firewall is not running and will not load. Tried to roll back to before the infection but it says it has been disabled by group policy.

Tried to run DDS but window opens and closes quickly. Watched the processes and DDS.scr loads and find.exe and then DDS stops but find stays running.

Ran RootRepeal and it crashes if I include files in the report option so the report sans files is attached. Thanks in advance!
