Specs: Windows XP
Hi, my problem is the lost internet connection after manually removing various trojan-type computer virusese including a.exe, b.exe, h.exe and msa.exe. By "manually removing" I mean I deleted all those .exe files from the folder as well as Windows registries I thought was related to those viruses. I had Malware-byte anti-virus software installed in my XP computer, but it was disabled by one of those viruses (Probably by a.exe). That happened at the end of August and I still don't have internet conenction in my Windows computer ;( My guess is that if I change certain value of particular registry related to internet connection I will have an internet connection again. Buy I may be wrong (It sounds too simplistic). If anybody knows how to fix it, please help.

Try this first:

May be because the winsocks are damaged. This is microsofts method for repairing them.

Step 1

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
3. In Registry Editor, locate the following keys, right-click each key, and then click Delete:



4. When you are prompted to confirm the deletion, click Yes.
Note Restart the computer after you delete the Winsock keys. Doing so causes the Windows XP operating system to create new shell entries for those two keys. If you do not restart the computer after you delete the Winsock keys, the next step does not work correctly.

Step 2 Install TCP/IP

1. Right-click the network connection, and then click Properties.
2. Click Install.
3. Click Protocol, and then click Add.
4. Click Have Disk.
5. Type C:\Windows\inf and then click OK.
6. On the list of available protocols, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), and then click OK.

Restart the computer and try to get online.
