Give the following a try:
Start => Run => Type netsh winsock reset then click ok. Restart your computer then check windows firewall again.
I dont know where to start ...
Im working on my gfs comp which is fubar. I think it got hit by malware, trojan thing. I used avg free, adaware and spybot in both regular and safe mode. Nothing is showing up now.
i can not access firewall ICS issue
i can not access internet - no ip
i can not ipconfig renew - no PCS (i think that is right)
i can not start pcs service .. when i try to start the service i get an error, same error i get when i try and start any services using services.msc
i can not use system restore in regular mode or safe mode - error message says restart and try again which does nothing.
i can not open IE - it seems to pop open for a second before it closes.
XP - compaq presario s5300NX -
im reading and trying stuff and reading more .. but i can not d/l new tools, or upload any logs or such. i havnt tried to use the cd writer yet .. and im scared to try
anyhow - i dont know what i can do - i do not have disks, sadly, so if the compaq d: recovery stuff doesnt work i guess ill have to go to the store. (the comp was a christmas gift to my gfs sister - older and i had nothing to do with buying or setting it up - i just have to pick up the peices).
if this is in the wrong section i appologise.
thank you for any help or ideas you have.
