I am working on a dell inspiron 910 Mini running windows XP that got open cloud AV a week ago. Based upon the other posts about Open Cloud, I ran combo fix and Rouge killer. Finally I was able to, I think, delete Open Cloud. Scans of Avast and Malwarebytes now show no suspicious files. However in the process of removal I lost the ability to connect to the internet either wireless or by network cable. I am currently on another laptop on the same network, so the network would seem to be working.
I have tried winsockxpfix to no avail. When I try the command ipconfig /renew, I get a message saying that the RPC server is unavailable. Yet when I open services it states that it is running. I have tried making my network open with no success and I have tried it with and without broadcasting ssid. I have also tried renewing the available networks list. I have also tried uninstalling the wireless card so that I can re-install it, but windows stops the the uninstallation saying that it is necessary for startup.
I would appreciate any help you can throw my way.
