    this fixes it

    go to start menu, run, type in the following:
    Netsh winsock reset
    it will run and the command screen will close on its own
    -go to: control panel, administrative tools, services:
    -scroll to: windows firewall/internet connection sharing and open
    -make sure startup type is automatic
    Then restart your computer, and you will be all set

    Bryan2k5' Problem Above

    Hi does anyone - Bryan2k5 or Tech people in particular - know whether this problem was ever resolved?

    After the messages copied below were posted in June this year the trail went cold.

    As I have exactlty the same problem with exactlty the same virus found I would really like to know if he managed to sort out the firewall problem (System Restore is disabled too and I wondered if he encountered that).

    Rather than bothering him are you able to advise?

    Grateful for any help.


    " I ran a scan but it couldnt remove these three infections:


    what can I do to remove those? "

    " here are the three infections it found. Are these big problems?

    Virus File
    BKDR PRORAT.l C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\reginv.dll
    BKDR PRORAT.l C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\winkey.dll
    BKDR PRORAT.A C:\WINDOWS\services.exe "

    Not really the definitive response I was hoping for but thank you anyway. With a bit more googling I eventually solved the problem relatively easily. No major re-writes of the regisrty, no booting in safe mode are necessary and HJT wasn't enough.

    If anyone else experiences the same trouble it's basically the Backdoor Prorat virus that is the cause. If you type that into Google you'll find a link to a website where you can download a tool that eridicates it very easily. Once done you just need to reset things in Control Panel and Settings and it should be okay.

    Smashing - as we say here in the North of England!

    You're very helpful but I'm not entirely sure you read my last message correctly. I know it's a Trojan and thankfully I got rid of it by downloading some software from here:

    If anyone else has the same problem, once you get the software, note that if you are prompted for a password you should type in "Pro" without the quotes. The button you need to click once it has been launched is the one with the Paintbrush.

    I personally need no more responses to the problem I posted yesterday.

    Thank God! You have solved it for me!!

    THIS FIXED THE PROBLEM FOR ME. I have tried everything else, and spent hours and hours researching the problem. What an easy fix--after all of the scans, etc. I've done. Thank you so much.

    I tried several things from the posts in this thread and could not get any of them to work.
    I finally dug up my XP Upgrade CD-ROM and ran the "Upgrade" option again. It restored all of the necessary files for the firewall and ICS service.
    There were also some other odd things the computer was doing thet went away afterwards.

    Hope this helps.
