|I'm working on a friends computer right now.|
I am having trouble with the dhcp service.
At first I wasn't able to get the internet to work, but then I found that the dhcp service was not started.
I started the service and the internet works just fine, however; whenever the computer starts the service does not start back up . It IS in the Automatic position. I have to go the service section and start the service manually for it to work.
There was a small trojan on the computer.
Sense then I have installed AWG, Ad-aware, spybot . I have scanned and cleaned everything. I also have erased a ton of un-used progrags, cleaned history, temp files, checked on downloaded program files and everything checks out. As well I have done a manual check of almost all windows folders/ program folders
I also have took off all start up items on msconfig as well a defrag.
The computer appears to be completely fine, though the dhcp service is not working properly.
There is one other issue too, Windows update does not work too. I get a internet time out connection. Both on firefox and ie. All other websites work.
