hi. my uncle has installed sun java cd/dvd writer onto his laptop the other day, after doing so he can no longer view web pages using mozilla or ie.

The laptop is a hp pavilion zx5000 running windows xp with sp2.

There are 3 methods of connecting to the internet on the laptop, an adsl line, normal dial up and bluetooth connection. All 3 connections will connect however all that is displayed is cannot find server or page not found. I have also noticed that no program can connect either, i.e. ad-aware and messenger both cannot connect.

i have run microsoft anti-spyware, norton anti-virus 2004, ad-aware se personal, and about buster but so far to no avail. below is the hijack this v1.99.1 log. any help/ideas would be greatly appreciated. thanks

ulikechicken82,

Hi and welcome to the Daniweb forums :).

===============

First of all we have to remove Newdotnet, either from add/remove programs, or by going here and scrolling down to the uninstall tool

===============

Please visit at least two of the following sites for an online virus scan:

BitDefender Free Online Virus Scan
http://www.bitdefender.com/scan/licence.php

Make sure you tick AutoClean under Scan Options.

Panda ActiveScan
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/com/activescan_principal.htm
Make sure you tick Disinfect automatically under Scan Options.

Housecall at TrendMicro
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/housecall/start_corp.asp
Make sure you tick Auto Clean.
When it completes, post back the full filename of any files that cannot be cleaned or deleted.

eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx

===============

Run HiJackThis, click "Scan", then check(tick) the following, if present:

O4 - HKLM..\Run: [XPSP2 Firewall] C:\WINDOWS\system32\xpsp2fw.exe
O4 - HKCU..\Run: [Windows Update Client ] C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuclient.exe
O4 - Global Startup: BTTray.lnk = ?

O9 - Extra button: Related - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm
O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Show &Related Links - {c95fe080-8f5d-11d2-a20b-00aa003c157a} - C:\WINDOWS\web\related.htm

Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

===============

Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure you are able to view system and hidden files/ folders:

files...

C:\WINDOWS\system32\xpsp2fw.exe
C:\WINDOWS\system32\wuclient.exe

-

Note that some of these file(s)/folder(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them in "Safe Mode".

-

Reboot.

===============

After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Please let me know how your pc is now.

Edited by diafol: fixed formatting

Your internet is still hijacked by New.Net. Did you successfully uninstall it, or did you run the uninstall tool? If you didn't try the tool, please do so as it has always worked before.

OK. For some reason it has left a remnant behind which is disrupting your winsock chain.

Download LSPfix from here
On the opening screen, click the "I know what I'm doing" checkbox. Check all instances of "newdot~1.dll" (and nothing else), and move them to the "Remove" pane. Then click Finish.

The entry will likely have the full name of newdotnet rather than newdot~1 so it's ok to move that over.
