    Hello

    I am fixing a computer for a friend and it seems to be a bit nasty of a problem.

    It is:

    Acer Desktop
    Windows XP Professional SP3

    There is no network connection that will work. I have no access to windows firewall and the service Windows Firewall/Internet Connection Sharing will never start. I get an error message 10050 that says "A socket operation encountered a dead network."

    I have tried the following repairs

    1. New network cards both wired and wireless with the same results as the original.
    2. Checked TCP/IP properties to make sure DHCP is enabled
    3. Tried to "repair" connection but it would never get an IP address
    4. Ran AVG antivirus off of a flash drive that found a couple of Trojans and a bunch of spyware. I deleted them all.
    5. Installed "Sharedaccess.reg" into the registry followed by restart then command line entry "netsh firewall reset" and then ran "firewall.cpl"
    6. Also command line "Rundll32 setupapi,InstallHinfSection Ndi-Steelhead 132 %windir%\inf\netrass.inf followed by restart, Netsh firewall reset, ran firewall.cpl

    I am at a point where I need some one on one help I think. It looks like the Trojans did some damage to some files that now need repaired/replaced.

    I have already done an FSS report. It is as follows:

    Try SFC /SCANNOW and ...

    (From a JohnWill post)

    TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Windows XP with SP2 or SP3.

    Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt.

    Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

    Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

    Reboot the machine.

    I don't know if the scannow was suppose to show me a report after it was finished but it didn't.

    I did both resets and rebooted with no change.

    I redid the FSS report as well
