Greetings and Happy New Year! A few days ago I happened to be invaded by one of those fake anti-virus programs, which I was able to remove successfully. After removing, however, I lost my internet connection and have not been able to get it back. I've tried a number of different tools (winsock fix, LSP fix, etc, as well as various registry cleaners), with no luck. Every time something says it's fixed, I still cannot access the internet on either IE or FireFox. I am using another family computer to do my searching and downloading to help with this issue. Please help! Thanks!

Great!
Do you use Windows firewall or some 3rd party firewall?
If Windows firewall see if you can turn it on.

Next, you have an issue with Security Center.

Following steps involve registry editing. Please create new restore point before proceeding!!!
How to:
XP - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/948247
Vista and Seven - http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/create-a-restore-point-for-windows-vistas-system-restore/


Please go to Start=>Run (alternatively use Windows key+R), type regedit and click OK.
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\Root
Right-Click Root and select Permissions...
Under Security type while Everyone is selected put a check mark in the box under Allow next to Full Control.
Click Apply and OK.

Go back to the package you just downloaded from my site.
Double-click wscsvc.reg and confirm the prompt.
Double-click legacy_wscsvc.reg and confirm the prompt.

Please go back to the the Root key again while Everyone is selected remove check mark in the box under Allow next to Full Control and close the registry.

Restart computer, see if you can access Security Center and post new FSS log.
