I'm running Win XP SP 3 on a desktop. It got infected with a nasty Virus that I finally got rid of with Superantispyware.
Now I find that I can't connect to the Internet, even though the Local Area Connection is showing that it's connected. I use RoadRunner as my ISP, and called them to check everything. The Tech said that she could actually detect the Modem working. She rebuilt the TCP/IP, etc. then said there was nothing more she could do. A tech actually came by the house and said the Modem was working properly, which I know it does, because I can connect with my Toshiba Laptop. I've tried everything that I've seen on the Internet with no avail, i.e, checking to make sure IE isn't in the offline mode.
I'm wondering if there's something left of the virus in the desktop, as the laptop has no problem, which I think rules out the modem as a problem.
I've scanned with AVG and MalwareBytes and found nothing. Also repaired (rebuilt) Winsock.
Thanks for any help!
