Apologies for diving straight in with a question but my internet access is a bit limitted at the minute, and I couldn't find an answer on a quick read round.
My computer's an old Dell running XP Home. It ended up well and truely virussed up, various trojans and a rootkit infection. I've cleaned it with a few tools I downloaded off here, but it looks like although I've cleared the infections, my networking's been left messed up and it won't connect to the net. The connection status is showing it as not properly connected, and it thinks it's sending packets but not getting anything back, so I'm guessing the TCP/IP stack's got a chunk out of it?
I haven't got my install discs to hand, so I can't do SFC / scannow, or any other variety of fried chicken for that matter
Does anyone know any good tools for repairing the networking?
