Had redmond.exe.  Can now get on the Internet in safe mode only althought can ping sites in regular "mode".
XP Pro SP3

So, it appears that the virus is gone but the damage not.

Check your proxy settings and make sure it is not checked.
proxy settings - IE>Tools>Internet options>Connections>Lan settings

Proxy is good...   Problem is that IE, Chrome, etc can't hit the Internet... nor can any antivirus programs (updates)... can only ping lest in Safe Mode.

Also reset IE, ran a couple of netsh resets (int ip and winsock) and removed/reinstalled the NIC drivers.
