Hello! Looks like this is an issue that is cropping up quite a bit, but it seems that after my home desktop contracted XP Security 2012, it lost access to the internet. Wireless network still works, other wireless devices still work (like this laptop), but no dice for the desktop. I removed the virus by transferring the programs via usb--and still not internet access, sadly. Computer just keeps "Acquiring Network Address".




Yes...I am having the same issue. Am running the XP checkdisk as I type (typing on desktop..laptop afflicted) and hoping that will clear up some issues. Any idea how this spreads? Email? Websites?

Have you scanned for viruses? I suggest you start up your computer in safe mode and scan using malwarebytes and remove the virus. Let me know how you go.

I have run Malwarebytes multiple times. It found several items the first scan, nothing in the next three, and I just finished another full scan and one object was found. This is rather confusing because I have not had access to the internet, so where did the one found just now come from? I also have Ad-aware, and the same thing...objects found, nothing for next two scans...will scan again now just to be safe. I do reboot the pc after every scan, whether it tells me to or not.

I ran the check disk because I was having other issues right after the virus was found by Malwarebytes. I could not open any programs without it asking me, what program do you want to use to open this program with...fixed that Then kept getting the "can not find rundll32.exe" so I had to reinstall that then ran the disk check. It did find several corrupted file paths.

disable your system restore. Then run the scan again. Let me know if it shows up with zero
