Hi, we're not able to connect to the internet with a desktop that was recently infected. After cleaning with multiple runs of MBAM and ComboFix, PC is showing a connection and strong signal with our wireless router, but packet exchange is almost nil. All of the installed browsers (Chrome, FF, IE) open but none are able to connect. I just ran FSS and am pasting the log below--thanks!

Any ideas? Thx!

This sounded like a filesystem issue with either corrupt system files or possibly registry (WinSock) settings.

If all else failed, give this tool a shot: WinSock XP Fix 1.2

Here is more info on this easy-to-use, standalone fix that I think anyone can use:

Fixes the winsock settings on your Windows XP machine. This tool is recommended for IT professionals only. Please read license.

It can often cure the problem of lost connections after the removal of Adware components or improper uninstall of firewall applications or other tools that modify the XP network and Winsock settings.

If you encounter connection problems after removing network related software, Adware or after registry clean-up; and all other ways fail, then give WinSock XP Fix a try.

It can create a registry backup of your current settings, so it is fairly safe to use. We actually tested it on a test machine that was having a Winsock problem due to some Adware removal, and after running the utility and rebooting, the connectivity was restored.

Thanks Turco, have run WinSockXP Fix several times with no luck.

The problem in this thread...

http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/microsoft-windows/viruses-spyware-and-other-nasties/threads/398230/page2

...looks very similar to mine. The fix was an ESET online scan. They were able to establish a wired connection to the inet.

I'll see if that or an air card can do the same for us, and if so, run an ESET scan.

This is premature until I've tried the other connection methods, but it doesn't look like I can download the free ESET scanner onto a portable drive--anyone know if that's the case?
