Solved loss of local network inbound traffic

August 11, 2015 at 10:39:22
Specs: Windows 7, ivy bridge
This issue that has recently occurred is driving me nuts? I use a linux server with samba and set up a W.I.N.S server. All 9 computers i my house use it fine and have for 10 + years. It’s just a basic netbois normal home network. No DHCP, all privet static.

The issue: I have a win 7 system that periodicity prevent all internal traffic. If I reboot it’s fixed and then a few days later back to this magical firewall. Thus far I see no signs of why, event view is free of errors. I don’t have a firewall nor have the Microsoft internet connection service running. Once it’s blocking requests I cannot get to the box from any system but I get out to the internet and the other boxes just fine. It is indicative of fire wall like behavior.

Is there anything I could check that might show a clue? I ran a few spybot searches and nothing shows up.

eh,, got this

The module "polstore.dll.mu_" was loaded but the entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found. Make sure that "polstore.dll.mu_" is a valid DLL or OCX file and then try again.

Could not complete the fix.

✔ Best Answer
No idead what's amiss here... However it "might" be useful to run the utility at tweaking.com.

Itwill checkout the installation and correct anything it finds that needs correcting.

It's free, safe to use.

Be careful to download "that" item rather than one or two items also shown for download. The site is a little konphusing - not the least when one selects a "mirror site" for download.

I have the utility very siccessful a couple of times, and one or two here have found similarly.

It is free, but they appreciate a wee small donation if you feel so inclined.

Are you absolutely certain this was all that was in the box when you hit OK/Enter:
regsvr32 polstore.dll

The error message you got implied that regsvr32 polstore.dll.mu_ was there.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

yes, sorry I count not copy and past that error I search it on the net. There is no .mu_ in that error message. Its the same verbiage though just " regsvr32 polstore.dll" without the mu_

I ran that utility above ill see if the issues comes back.

Turns out its the ms firewall but not sure why? When the problem occurs I can start the firewall and stop it, that fixes the issue? I have it disabled.

I guess you could try "Control Panel > Windows Firewall > Restore defaults".

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

This page explains what polstore.dll.mu is.
Recommend a restore or check for virus/malware.

Don't know if the FIX is any good.

Re #9
I wouldn't jump in on that program. If you download the download file it is just "a general fix things program", not aimed at this particular issue despite the name on the blue button. They pick up what you put in Google then plonk that on the download button to give you false assurance. There are many around that are just trying to sell themselves and what they say on their websites and do are always similar. Read the blurb and keep a note of this type of thing so that you can avoid it in future.

If you want a quick security check the following three freebies are an excellent start (run in the order given):

AdwCleaner:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
http://filehippo.com/download_malwa...
(green Download button top right - not anything else on the page)
Install and Run the program but before doing its Scan go to "Settings > Detection and Protection" and put a checkmark in "Scan for rootkits". Quarantine anything it finds.

If they find anything please copy/paste the logs on here and let us know if there has been any improvements to the issues you are having.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
