|A few days ago a netbook I was using, EEE PC 1000HE, picked up a virus pretending to be a virus protection system. I didn't buy it for a second of course. "XP Security Center", well I couldn't get Malware Bytes to run so I was desperate. Someone on a non-tech forum told me to run Combofix.... I didn't do any research first... I was stupid.|
Combofix destroyed the virus but, well, other things too I think.
Now the TCP/IP is fouled up. The DHCP thing doesn't work at all. It simply says it cannot renew the IP address. This applies to wireless and wired connections. I went to the services list and the DHCP thing refuses to be enabled.
I am at my wits end. I have tried a fixit patch from Microsoft and nothing happened. I tried a registry fix utility and no luck. Seriously I don't know if this is the root of the problem or just a symptom.
This is a borrowed netbook, I cannot reset it because of all the stuff it contains. I really need to get the internet working again. Oh the router is not the problem, there are other computers, xboxes, iphones and stuff using it all the time. I am not sure I am even explaining it properly.
