Scanned multiple times with malware bites to finally seemingly get it all.
Then I had to run the unhide.exe to see the hidden files again.
Then I had to copy the program files links back from c:documents and settings/*profilename*/Local Settings/temp/smtmp/1/*.* to c:Documents and Settings/*profilename*/Start Menu/
So far, so good. I also copied those moved start menu programs back to the /All Users/ and maybe one other user folder to fix their start menu too. (They didn't have their own recoverable start menu programs that I could find moved somewhere else).
Now, I notice that internet explorer doesn't allow internet access, and times out.
I've installed avira from a cd, and it was able to update through the internet connection, but at dialup speeds.
Something else is still wrong. I haven't messed with any Java uninstalls/reinstalls yet.
Any ideas where to start fixing the network connection based on what this virus may have done?
I'm currently scanning with Avira hoping it catches something.
--Avira caught and removed 1 virus. Problem still exists. Internet connection tests ok on other computer, same port.
Anyone else experiencing this from the new XP Recovery Virus?
I have removed older versions of it 3 times before on other systems without so much trouble.
Other programs that access the internet fail to connect. (Only thing that has been able to slowly connect that I'm aware of was Avira update). I installed firefox from a cd, just to try anyway, and it doesn't connect either.
I've also tried all the normal stuff, resetting the computer, modem, router, etc.
Something is choking and/or stopping internet access.
