After dealing with the XP 2012 virus I have been unable to connect to the internet. The only way I have been successful connecting is by manually starting DHCP. Looking at the event viewer I see DHCP fails to start, then shortly after, AFD failed to start. However I can manually start DHCP and connect. Also, afs.sys is in WINDOWS\system32\drivers

After doing more research I looked at registry editor and found two AFD entries, AFD and afd. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\.afd and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AFD There is no image path in the afd registry

Is a residual from the virus?

Hi -
If this is not causing you a problem, do not touch it -
This what I have in my Registry for AFD in Services, you can compare yours with it.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AFD]
"DisplayName"="AFD"
"Description"="AFD Networking Support Environment"
"Group"="TDI"
"ImagePath"=\\SystemRoot\\System32\\drivers\\afd.sys"

Thank You -

Hi -
Everything I search lists both as the same thing - Capitals or lower case print

It seems that the item is listed in both ways and may depend on your system only
Personally I would leave it as it is for now, unless someone has another better answer

Regards -
EDIT - It is listed as the same in many pages, with Capital and lower case options -
Registry Location:
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Afd\Parameters
HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\AFD\Parameters
DWORD, not present by default. Recommended: leave blank as is
