Hello, everyone. XP Internet Security 2012 infiltrated my desktop a few days ago, and I took a few steps to remove it, or, at least, attempt to. I ran Malware Bytes Anti-Malware and Combofix, and these processes seemed to get rid of the virus. However, shortly thereafter, I no longer could connect to the Internet (LAN). I tried to rectify this issue by reading some tips online, but to no avail. I decided to run Farbar Scanner Service by using my laptop for the download with a CD, then transferring it to my infected PC. My desktop will not allow Farbar to run. I tried to do a system restore, and although it indicated a successful restoration, my desktop is still having issues. I decided to do a Windows XP repair install, which apparently worked, but I'm still having a multitude of issues and I cannot connect to the internet.
My computer specs:
Microsoft Windows XP
Home Edition Version 2002
Service Pack 1
4CPU 2.40 GHz
1.12 GB of RAM
****If I must post logs, how would I do so from infected PC, since I'm not able to access the internet from my desktop?
Your help is truly appreciated in advance!
