Repair is not always possible.

Here's why. With trojans, some give remote control to the bad person and the damage is untold.

What happens is we do the best we can with the Windows 2000 SFC repair tool (I suggest you run IEFIX found with and if that or a REPAIR INSTALL doesn't clean it up then you back up and start over.

-> Its all part of the lesson about operating a computer safely, with full antivirus and firewall protection and staying away from illicit activities.

Add all of your machines to a dummy workgroup. Then re-add them to your domain.

A trojan has free reign over the system.

In reply to: network name not found - soulation need

As the trojan and the person who remotely damaged the OS doesn't have to damage it in any specific way, there is no specific cure. If the repair install or WINSOCKFIX doesn't cure it, you reload the OS.

It's also a lesson about current antivirus and safe computing practices.
