Internet Connectivity and Browsing

Post by Peacefl1 on Fri 11 Dec 2009, 6:40 am

I've been reading many of the threads regarding this particular problem and perhaps will be referred to an earlier post, but I had a virus that rendered my Safari, IE and all other browsers (excluding Firefox which does browse but takes me to ad sites each time I click on a link) totally ineffective. Each time I click on IE or try attempt to install any other browser, I either get a blank page (IE) or a message that informs me of an internet connectivity issue. I use XP and have SP3 and a router. I installed Kaspersky which did a full scan but, the virus will not allow any software programs to update to my server--again, because it shows that I have no internet connectivity. I called Dell and they had me to do a ping which showed my router and internet working fine. I tried installing Malwarebyes but it gives an error message: 732 (12029,0) which has something to do with being unable to connect to internet. I don't know what else to do. Can you help?

Open CMD, Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults by typing: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults by typing: netsh int ip reset reset.log

Restart your PC.

If it doesn't work, download Winsock XP Fix from here, save it to your Desktop.

Double click on the exe on your Desktop.
Press the "Fix" button, then restart again.

See if you can connect now.
