I've been having a problem where my internet connection has effectively died - this happened once before and between AdAware and Spybot, I was able to fix it. This seems to be slightly different. Naturally the first things I did when this started occurring were to run VirusScan, AdAware and Spybot. Both AA and SB cleared off a bunch of things. SpyBot found a DSO Exploit error that keeps reappearing everytime I run SB. However, if I interpreted what I read correctly, this is an error with SB's coding, and the DSO Exploit has been removed.

The piece I can't figure out from the Hijack log is:
O10 - Broken Internet access because of LSP provider '' missing

I did a search on LSP Provider missing and everything I found had a .dll file in the quotes. This is coming up without any file information. Any thoughts on what this may be or how to fix it? Any help would be much appreciated!

For reference, the Spybot log with the DSO exploit came back with this:

Download LSPfix from here
Run the program by double clicking on the file then click *Finish*. Do not move anything from the left window, just hit the finish button after starting it.


I tried running LSPFix and it didn't seem to do anything. On the 'remove' column there was a protocol listed that just appeared as: üP▌

However, when I click 'Finish' it doesn't seem to do anything. I rebooted and reran LSPFix and the same strange protocol appeared in the 'remove column.'

I'm fearing my next step's gonna be to format the hard drive and re-install from scratch.
