It seems I have been infected on my home computer.

My LAN connection says limited or no connectivity.

I forget the name of the sofware that installed but it was some kind of program that supposedly improved p2p connectivity. It claimed not to be adware or malware. My son somehow let it install.

It had an unistall routine which didn't work.

My connection says it can't get an IP address.

I used ipconfig and tried to renew the address but it says there is something that looks like a socket but isn't and can't repair the IP address.

I unistalled my LAN conection, rebooted and reinstalled it but to no avail.

I would do a system restore but my system restore says it is unavailable due to a group policy change and I am to contact the domain administrator.

I have run AVG anitvirus, Adaware, and Microsoft AntiSpyware and they can't fix the problem.

Short of re-formatting the hardrive I am at a loss as to what to do next.

Any ideas?

Your LSP chain has probably been broken.
  • Please download LSPFix from here.
  • Run the LSPFix.exe that you have just finished downloading.
  • What processes are listed under the 'Remove' heading?
Another option:
Try WinsockFix - run it and then, once completed, shut down your computer, and unplug your modem for two minutes, plug your modem back in, wait one minute, then turn your computer back on.

If that fails;

Please goto Start, Run, type CMD, press 'OK', then do the following:
1. Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

2. Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot and test.
