  1. Hi,

    for me it's the first time using a forum but this time i could not find anything to solve my problem.

    I had a virus on my Windows XP and after removing the internet doesn't work. I found out that NetBT.sys was missing and copied it into system32/drivers. after that i tried to repair registry because the NetBT entry was also missing. But still - not working.

    Can anyone help me please? I'm working on it and trying since days and no solution fund.

    Thank you so far

    Please, observe following rules:
    • Read all of my instructions very carefully. Your mistakes during cleaning process may have very serious consequences, like unbootable computer.
    • If you're stuck, or you're not sure about certain step, always ask before doing anything else.
    • Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those I suggest.
    • Never run more than one scan at a time.
    • Keep updating me regarding your computer behavior, good, or bad.
    • The cleaning process, once started, has to be completed. Even if your computer appears to act better, it may still be infected. Once the computer is totally clean, I'll certainly let you know.
    • If you leave the topic without explanation in the middle of a cleaning process, you may not be eligible to receive any more help in malware removal forum.

    =============================================================

    Please download Farbar Service Scanner (FSS) and run it on the computer with the issue.

      • Internet Services
      • Windows Firewall
      • System Restore
      • Security Center
      • Windows Update
    • Press "Scan".
    • It will create a log (FSS.txt) in the same directory the tool is run.
    • Please copy and paste the log to your reply.
