Yesterday I did a windows update which installed/activated Windows XP SP2 security center.

The first time, the internet connection said it would be limited because my IP address was no longer recognized. I rebooted, and now I can no longer connect at all. (error 769; destination unreachable)

I tried adding new programs to the exceptions list, as suggested, but nothing happened. I turned off the firewall, virus protection and live updates, but still nothing. I guess what my question is, is wtf...

Please help?

This problem could occur because of Spyware , go on over to the Security section of this fourm and post you problem along with a hijackthis log .
Spyware & Trojans and Other Nasties

Please Don't post the hijackthis log in this section Thanks .

Please do this.
Download 'Hijack This!'. HijackThis
Save it in a convenient permanent folder such as C:\HJT\, double click HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

Your copy of HijackThis needs to be in a folder of it's own. When HJT fixes anything, it makes backups of the original files in the folder it is in. Since Temporary folders are emptied now and then (the files are DELETED), it would not be a good idea to have your backups there. Those backups would be VITAL to restoring your system if something went wrong in the FIX process!


1. Please go to you're 'My Documents' folder, right-click and select 'New > Folder' then name the folder 'HJT'.

2. Copy and paste HijackThis.exe to the new folder.

3. Close ALL windows except HJT

4. SCAN with HJT

5. POST the new log in this thread using 'Add Reply'

DO NOT MAKE ANY CHANGES OR CLICK "FIX CHECKED" UNTIL WE CHECK THE LOG, AS SOME OF THE FILES ARE LEGIT AND VITAL TO YOUR COMPUTER'S HEALTH

Thanks, I posted a new thread in the security section under the same heading. Hopefully this does the trick.

If you want Service pack 2, you can order the disc for free from Bill Gates & Company. give it a week and boom, you don't have to worry about dial up or loosing internet connections or anything. The disc is free, so I had no complaints.

Hi,

I have had the same issue. I followed your instructions and have posted my log file from the scan. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
