This computer is connected to the internet via a netgear wireless card.

Ok, I downloaded and ran AVG. It detected and deleted a trojan called msdirectx.sys.
After that, IE will no longer connect to the internet.
I tried running the rescue disks, but apparently one of them is corrupt.
I tried reinstalling an earlier version of IE--no luck.
Initially, I was able to go to Windows Explorer and get online that way, so I think the wireless connection is not the problem. However, I haven't been able to do it since.
I tried installing an AOL program and it won't work, I get a waol error message.

I have no clue where to go next. I cannot connect to the internet to download HijackThis or anything else.

Any suggestions?
Thank you.

AVG is a bad anti-virus if you ask me....umm have you tried using mozilla firefox or opera? they may run good. uninstall AVG and then use a differnt Anti-virus such as Mcaffe online scan to help you out :o

DO NOT install AOL. It will take over your computer, guaranteed. And you need AOL service to use it anyway.
DO NOT uninstall AVG. It's better than nothing.


And how are you posting this? :P If it's from a friend's/library computer, take a floppy disk with you and download HijackThis onto it.

The computer with the problem is our second computer, one that my son uses.
I did what you said.
Here's what I got:

OK, I have it working. I just spent hours reading other messages...
First, I restored newdotnet from the recycle bin. That got the internet working again. I went to their site, downloaded the uninstall and did that.
no more internet.
Found info on the other computer and did a LSP fix and TA-DA! It works again. Did another HJT scan and would like someone to tell me if anything else creepy is there. For example, what is PowerRegScheduler.exe and should it be there?
I also changed browsers to Opera.
Thank you!
