    I was finally able to get all the spyware/adware off my computer, but there is still something wrong. It did something to block all outgoing port connections except for port 80. So basiclly only webbrowsing works. It even blocked port 443. I can't update any of my virus defs, as MS adware blocking, norton, ad-aware are unable to connect to the internet. I can't even connect to other computers using RDP.

    I have tried to reinstall my nic card, I have reset winsock2, and I have looked at my hosts file. Everything seems to be there, but I still can't figure out what has been changed to block all these ports. I've also tried firefox, and I have the same problem. I am able to ping, and it is able to resolve DNS, but I can't connect to anything on any port other than 80. The spyware also messed up windows update, (maybe because it uses a wierd port to check for updates?) but I'll get to that problem later =/

    I am running Windows XP Home, SP2.

    Also, to the best of my knowledge, there is no spyware programs running as of right now. I have looked at every module running under every process, and they are all MS modules. So I'm pretty sure there is no active process running that is causing this, unless it installed a rootkit, and I'm not able to see all the running processes Thanks for any help.

    Hope there is a way of fixing this without having to reinstall windows =/


    EDIT - I know it's not a router problem, etc, because the other PC's on the network work fine, and I can't even get to port 80 on my gateway, or connect to RDP or webservers on other computers on the network, that aren't behind any firelwalls, etc.
