Slight problem, you don't seem to have a clean backup file to replace the infected file.
We need to copy a clean file from a clean PC and replace the bad one. This is a little bit more tricky but I have laid it out for you in four steps. If you are stuck or not sure then just post back.1. Copy the ws2_32.dll file from a clean computer. Do not download a copy from the internet as this may also be infected.
Double-click My Computer
, double-click the windows folder, then double-click the system32 folder. You should find the ws2_32.dl file in this folder. Right click on this file and select Copy
Insert your transferral media (blank CD or flash drive)
Open the media by double-clicking the icon for it in windows explorer.
from the edit menu at the top of the explorer window. If you are burning onto a CD select Burn these files to CD
from the panel at the left of the explorer screen.2. Renaming the bad file
Boot the computer with your XP CD and wait for it to get to the main installation screen; it should give you the option of pressing R
to start the recovery console. Press R
You should see a command prompt - C:\windows>
Type cd system32
and then press enter
The command prompt should now read C:\windows\system32>
Type rename ws2_32.dll ws2_32.bad
then press enter3. Find out the drive letter associated with your media. (If you know this already skip to number 4)
Insert your media and type d
and hit enter.
If the command prompt changes to D:\> then type dir and press enter.
If you see your clean copy of ws2_32.dll listed, then you've got the right drive letter. If not repeat the procedure using the letter E in place of D; procede through the alphabet until you get the right drive letter.4.Copy the clean file to the System 32 folder
Type the following substituting the ? with the drive letter for your removable media copy ?:\ws2_32.dll c:\windows\system32
Then press enter
Now you can remove your CD or flashdrive and type exit
at the command prompt to reboot the system.
Now please rerun Combofix and post the log it produces.
