    I believe I have recently been infected with a very hard to find virus that is preventing me from accessing several programs as well as the internet. I'm posting this from a laptop which isn't even mine.
    I think there are others here that are going through the same problem. I believe Christopher06 in particular has it.

    I Have a Compaq Presario with a Pentium 4 processor and WinXP Home.

    I originally posted this problem in the web&email board describing how my IPadress was locked into 169.254, meaning there's something going wrong between DCHP and TCP/IP, and it would not be fixed with the usual solution of entering ipconfig/release + ipconfig/renew in Command Prompt.
    I initially thought that Winsock was corrupt, but all my attempts at fixing it -both manually and with WinsockFix- failed.

    In the end it all seemed fixed after using systm restore, which nobody here suggested.

    But a day later it came back even worse.

    My connection has been severed again, and there are several programs I can't even access. Most notably are AVG antivirus and Windows Media Player. I can click on them, but nothing ever comes up.
    I can't use system restore any longer because that's also inaccessable, though in a slightly different way. I click on it once and nothing happens. I click on it again, and a blank window comes up.

    I've included a HJT log just in case you find anything, though I doubt it, since other's who describe almost the same problem aren't getting anything from it.
