Can't connect to internet after Virus Removal

Recommended Posts

Removed Trojan infection on XP system but now I can't start several services including DHCP client. I found that the AFD dependancy is the cause. I can go into regedit and remove the AFD from the DHCP service and reboot then the sevice will start. I replaced the afd.sys file in C:Windows\System32\Drivers with a copy from the SP3 directory. I went back into regedit and renabled the the afd. After rebooting the service will not start. I found on the forum about going to device management and check under nonplug and play for AFD. It is not listed. Please Help.

Hi, and Welcome to Malwarebytes!

This is probably caused by the infection, let the experts have a look at it to make sure they get all the infections removed.

Please read the following so that you can begin the cleaning process:

As we don't deal with malware removal in the General Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Forum, you need to start a topic in the Malware Removal forum so a qualified helper can help you fix any malware related problems/infections you may have.

  • Please read and follow the directions here, skipping any steps you are unable to complete. Then post a NEW topic here.
  • After posting your new post, make sure under options, you select Track this topic and choose Immediate Email Notification, so that you're alerted when someone has replied to your post.
  • One of the expert helpers there will give you one-on-one assistance when one becomes available.
  • Please refrain from making any further changes to your computer (Install/Uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc...) unless advised by a malware removal helper. Doing so can result in system changes which may hinder the attempts by a helper to clean your machine.

NOTE: Please DO NOT post back to (bump) your topic within the first 48 hours.

Replying to your own posts changes the post count and helpers are looking for topics with zero replies. If you reply to your own post helpers may think that you're already being helped and thus overlook your post.

    • If there is no reply from any experts after 48 hours, you can reply to the topic, asking for help again.
    • You may send a Private Message to a Moderator asking for assistance.

Alternatively, as a paying customer, you can contact the help desk at support@malwarebytes.org or here.

Please be patient, someone will assist you as soon as it is possible.

PS: Please use the "ADDREPLY" t_reply.gif button instead of other ones when you start replying. :)
