I was working on a friends Sony Viao Desktop P4 120gig HD 256RAM with Windows XP home.
He had almost 700 instances of spyware and adware that I removed with Spybot and Adaware. (should mention that this is before updates were done so Im sure there is more)
Problem now is that after removing that and his Norton Internet security(was expired) I can no longer connect to the internet.
I am on a DSL and have a DLink router.
If I open a command window I do not see any IP addresses. If I type ipconfig /renew nothign happens.
I have check the config settings and everything looks right. (ie autodetect proxy)
If I open Interenet Explorer is see the following res://c:windows/system32/shdoclc.dll/dnserror.htm
I have even tried to manually enter the IP Subnet and default gateway with no luck
The NIC card is reading my connection because the light on the router is on and the properties on the local area connection under network connections shows being connected at 100Mbps.
Any fixes would be very appreciated. Thank you.
