Ran Ad-Aware SE, now can not connect to the internet
Posted on 2005-04-07
Hello. I was getting a constant pop-up window stating "error loading winupd.dll". After reading several threads in this site it seams it was caused by spyware. I downloaded and ran Ad-Aware SE and it found several spyware apps. I removed them all and it mentioned that there was one that it was not able to delete, inetadpt.dll, and that it would like to reboot then remove this spyware. I proceeded to reboot and it finished with the deletion process of inetadpt.dll.
The problem now is that I can not get on the internet. I use a dhcp address from Verizon DSL and everything is ok to the computer. The computer simply does not pick up an address and shows the current ip address as a 169.x.x.x address with no gateway. I have restored the backup from Ad-Aware to no avail. I have also removed the app entirely to no avail. I have searched my hard drive for any instances of inetadpt.dll to no avail. Someone please help!!! Thank you.
