Following the instructions posted here and other places, I managed to remove Police Pro 2010. However, I find that EVERY instance of a NIC (including PPOE, MiniWan, etc.) became disabled. I tried removing and then re-installing the devices, in both safe mode and standard. Windows Firewall would not start because ICS won't run (no Zone Alarm disabling it, btw). I tried netsh winsock reset, ip reset, both to no avail.

I finally ended up doing a repair install, but I'd really like to know if this was just a result of the infection or if there was something else I could have done to restore the functionality.

Not knowing what tools you ran I cannot say with certainty, but depending where it was hooked it is very possible the malware tools hosed the connection

I used the usual - Super Anti-Spyware from Ultimate Boot, then mbam. As the NICs were completely crapped from Windows (worked fine with UB), what options did I have? Uninstalling (even from Safe Mode) and re-installing didn't work.
