Need your expert help !!!
for more than a day now i don't have an internet connection through my PC. I'm afraid some malware has ruined some settings and broken my connection.

I'm connected through an Aztech DSL 600EW rounter with a cable to the PC. a laptop with wireless connection (through this router) connect to the web just fine.
I've been running the WinsockXPFix.exe but this didn't solve the problem.
In addition, although I'm logged as an admin, I can't disable or repair the Local Area Connection. a ping to the router works (10.0.0.138) but a direct ping to a website doesn't get any response.

I'm getting desparate here and wouldn't like to re-install the OS...
Any ideas..?

Hi, e_hefetz :)

Please re-open HijackThis and scan. Check the boxes next to all the entries listed below.


O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [IFStub] O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [IFStub] C:\WINDOWS\Temp\Adware\InstaFinderK_inst.exe\InstaFinderK_inst.exe


Now close all windows and browsers, other than HiJackThis, then click Fix Checked.

Close Hijackthis.

Please then reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following :
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, tap the F8 key continually;
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, the Advanced Options Menu should appear;
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode, then press Enter.
  • Choose your usual account.
.

Using Windows Explorer (to get there right-click your Start button and go to "Explore"), please delete this folder:

C:\WINDOWS\Temp\Adware

Restart the computer.

Please download the enclosed folder. Save and extract its contents to the desktop. It is a batch file to check your connection. Once extracted click on the Test.bat and post the report it shall produce.

Hi, e_hefetz :)

You must reload the Bluetooth LAN Access Server Driver software as the IP Address appears as Node IpAddress: [0.0.0.0] Scope Id: []. Once done, restart the computer and connect.

Hey,
I have uninstalled the blue-tooth from the PC. the report now is lacking the blue-tooth line but beside this nothing was changed...

What could be the basic tests to resolve the problem source? it seems i can't ping any external address but only the router 10.0.0.138 ....

Thanks,
Eitan.

Run the Test.bat once again and post its report. I have asked a Network expert to take a look at this.,

Try this Automated WINSOCK Fix for XP, then do the following after rebooting.

Please supply the following info, exact make and models of the equipment please.

Make and exact model of the broadband modem.
Make and exact model of the router (if a separate unit).
Model numbers can usually be obtained from the label on the device.



I'd also like to see this:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD to open a command prompt:

Type the following commands:

PING 216.109.112.135

PING yahoo.com

IPCONFIG /ALL


Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.
