Recently I fell vicitim to the virus AV Security 2012. After many hours I feel that I have removed the virus. However, the virus disrupted my internet connection. Even now after I have removed the rouge program I still am unable to connect to the internet. Using internet explorer I ran a network diagnostic and received the following log:

Last diagnostic run time: 11/11/11 07:39:33 WinSock Diagnostic

Also if I simply click repair on the network adapter I receive the following error message:
Windows could not finish repairing the problem because the following action cannot be completed:
Renewing your IP address


How do I fix this?

Open Control Panel and click Add/Remove Programs. Look on the left and You should see Add/Remove Windows Components.

Reinstall TCP/IP by Unchecking it, then Apply. Open Windows Components again and Recheck, then Apply.

You may need your WindowsXp discs. Not sure, been a while since I've done anything in XP.

If that corrects the problem, your next step should be investing in a better Anti-virus. Free is not always a good thing.

There wasn't a TCP/IP to check or uncheck in the main options. By going to Contorl panel>Add/Remove>Add/Remove components>network services>details> I did find a "Simple TCP/IP services". This was unchecked already so I checked it and unchecked it a few more times. Unfotantly, it did require the windows XP cd complete the process. I have a gateway and it came with three CD's: A blue operating system CD, a burgundy driver CD, and a yellow applications CD. I have reformatted my computer before and use these three cds to perform the reformat. I assume that the XP CD would be the blue one but nothing happens when I put it in. My CD drive is D: and the program does not read anything from the D: drive. I also tried the burgundy CD which also did not work.

Was the TCP/IP button you described the one I found?
Is it the virus that is keeping me from completing the process or am I missing the right CD?
Are there any other ideas/fixes?

Also down at the bottom of the task bar where it shows running programs there is an icon for the LAN that shows two computers with a cable connecting the two and a little dot that is moving back and forth on the cable. When I hover over that icon it tells me that the status is renewing IP address. It has been like that from the beginning of the virus.

Thanks for your time

I was able to complete the first set of instructions. However, upon reboot I found that nothing had changed. I still have the same problem. When I tried to run the sfc scan I was asked for my windows CD again. I used the disc that says operating system but I received a prompt that said I had inserted the wrong disc.

I think I am going to do a reformat. I really don't want to but at this point I feel its the only option.

Thanks for all the help
