netbt issue after virus removal
Posted on 2011-09-26
I found a pc on our network with a virus (windows xp). After removing said virus and seeing the damage I noticed it could no longer connect to the network (stuck at limited to no connection). Checking event log I found DHCP could not start due to a nonexistant dependancy (netbt). After looking around I found a microsoft article saying to fix it you can remove the netbt dependancy from the regedit by editing the dhcp registry.
After removing the dependacy I booted up to find internet, exchange server and so on working correctly however network drives were unable to connect. Looking at the event log I found the following
The TCP/IP NetBIOS Helper service depends on the following nonexistent service: NetBT
Anyone have any suggestions on how I can restore network operations to reach the proper drives? I assume netbt was deleted or hidden due to the virus but not sure.
