This is the second computer that I have removed Total Security using Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes with the network connection being killed after the clean up. It's XP Pro SP 3 which I have already ran the OS repair on. Have also uninstalled the NIC and reinstalled with new drivers. The NIC is not giving any errors and I have tried static/dynamic IP address. Any ideas?

Have you checked to see that appropriate protocols are running?

Did you try setting up your connection anew, using the XP Connection/Network Wizard?

I have fixed the first issue by resetting the winsock and dns. This allowed the network connection to get repaired and I can now access the internet. New issue...machine can't access any network drives or let me re-add it to the domain. Gives an function error on both. BUT! It will work if I disable/uninstall the NIC and then re enable/scan&install it, but only until the computer is rebooted and then everything gets screwed up again.
