Posted this in the xp forum and someone said I should start here.

My problem is, AVG found malware and trojans. It put them in the vault but after this happened, I wasn't able to get onto the internet. The wireless status sits at Acquiring network address.
I tried uninstalling the drivers for the network card and downloading new drivers but it didn't work.
So after doing some research, I ran Combofix. It found Rootkit.zeroaccess and fixed it.
I also ran rkill.com, winsockxpfix, TCPIPfix.exe, OTL.exe.
Nothing else is found but still cannot get onto internet.
So going into services, I clicked on DHCP Client and clicked Start service. This error pops up:
" Could not start the DHCP Client service on Local Computer. Error 1075: The dependency service does no exist or has been marked for deletion"
Also tried starting TCP/IP Netbio helper and this comes up:
"Error 1075: The dependency service does no exist or has been marked for deletion"
Also tried starting ISEC Services and this comes up:
" Error 10050: A socket operation encountered a dead network"

Not sure what to do now. Any ideas?
Any help would be appreciated.

First of all you shouldn't be running Combofix on your own.

The dependency service does no exist or has been marked for deletion

Restart computer to fix the above error.
