Hello everyone,

My computer at work was infected with "Antivir Solution Pro".
I attempted to fix it without Malwarebytes as I do not have administrative rights to the computer, so I relied on HijackThis and two other virus scanners, one of them were Microsoft Forefront Client Security that was already installed.

I did a manual removal of the virus with bleeping computer's removal instructions for this specific virus, then found this in my HijackThis log:

O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider 'z:\windows\system32\mswsock.dll' missing

However, my computer's internet is working: the computer itself and the remote connection's internet.
The virus was caught on the remote computer.

Is there any way to locate this file on a clean computer and paste it over?

Any help is appreciated, thanks!
