Running Windows XP /SP3 Hello, I ran through the recommended steps to remove an infection. This fixed my original problem (most noticeably, DNS hijacking), but I am still having an issue: Whenever my system reboots, internet is lost. It appears the TCPIP stack is being corrupted (IPCONFIG/ALL returns the error: "Access is denied...Unable to open registry key for tcpip.") I understand this can happen due to the malware removal process; however, the usual fixes (e.g. winsockxpfix.exe) do not help. Further, once I do get internet up and running (see below), it will work fine until a reboot occurs, at which point tcpip is re-corrupted. Is this the work of a stubborn virus still present in my system? I have discovered, quite by accident, the following 2-step method to restore internet access. So far, nothing else has worked: 1. Uninstall and reinstall my D-Link drivers. This results in a normal-looking IPCONFIG/ALL, and I can obtain a network address and connect. HOWEVER I can't connect to any web sites (can ping IP numbers but not names). 2. Run combofix. Miraculously this restores full connectivity. I am attaching the original logs from when I ran through your infection-removal steps. Please note, however, that I have no Root Repeal log (that process crashed with a BSOD.) Also, since I have run combofix numerous times in order to restore internet (I know, I know, please don't yell at me! :-o) I only have the most recent log for that program. Thanks for any help you can give!
