After virus/spyware clean-up I have no network connectivity and wan mini port devices appear in device manager
Question: I have cleaned up a PC (XP SP3) with Malwarebytes and after a reboot I have no network connectivity. The machine was had a virus Reader_s.exe but whilst it was infected it could connect to the internet but after the clean it has no connectivity.
An internal error occurred: The request is not supported.
My LAN interface doesn't appear in network connections in Control Panel and when I look in device manager under network adapters I see:
Packet Scheduler miniport
VIA Rhine II Fast ethernet adapter
VIA Rhine II Fast ethernet adapter - Packet Scheduler miniport
wan miniport (ip)
wan miniport (ip) - packet scheduler miniport
wan miniport (l2tp)
wan miniport (pppoe)
wan miniport (pptp)
All of the above have exclamation marks beside them.
I have uninstalled the drivers then installed updated drivers but the error 7001 still appears with The Network Local Awareness depends on the AFD service which cannot start as it cannot find the required file.
I have tried the windows repair cd but that does not give the repair option.8-((
Any ideas please?
