Since removing the Virus Bust virus and Ad Sheriff and reinstalling XP, every time I do a windows update to get the critical updates reinstalled, my modem will not work.
I'm on 56K dial-up but when I check my connection settings the connection has actually been removed.
When I try to set up a new connection, when I get to the window to select either dial-up modem or the other two high speed connections, the only option available to me is the High Speed Always On. The other two are greyed out and unclickable. I reset my restore point to this morning and everything was fine, but then I did the Windows update thing and, bang, my internet connection no longer works and I can't setup new internet connection because the dial-up modem option is unavailable.
If I once again reset to my restore point will I loose all of the updates that I have done thus far and would that include AVG Free Edition, AdAware and Spybot S&D ?

Thank you in advance.

Sounds like you still have some malware running.

Follow acklans advice re a HJT log.
