Windows XP Pro SP3. I had a number of problems with this PC and was on the point of abandoning the OS but through searches on this site, I have managed to resolve a lot of the problems, which started when trying to uninstall AVG. Nearly all the damage that caused, seems to be corrected. I still have one problem. The PC is connected by cable to a router which provides Broadband facilities to a home network. The network connection was hanging at "trying to acquire an address", so I gave it a static IP, which I set in the router's config as well. I had earlier re-installed the Netgear adapter driver. Now, in Firedox I can connect to sites only if I supply their IP addresses, but not if I supply the URL.
Trying to start the DHCP client doesn't work. In a thread here, it was suggested that removing the DependOnService entry in the registry might help, but that didn't work either. There were a lot of warnings in the event log concerning TCP/IP. Resetting the TCP/IP connection via "netsh int ip rest restlog.txt" removed the manual adjustments I had made and set me back to the "trying to acquire an address" point.
I ran tdsskiller from this site but it found nothing. I also ran FSS, last night, and I am attaching the FSS.txt.
I would be grateful for any help or suggestions.
