Right, now we need to get a firewall back on that pc.
What was the issue that led you to uninstall Comodo?
Try to be as specific as you can.

You will need to reinstall the firewall.
Please download the pdf manual from Here
see from page 13 for setup
During the install it should ask you if you want to set up a new Network Zone. see page 26
Follow the instructions there & you should get network access.

Let me know how you get on.

Cheers,

sage5

Go to My Computer > C:\ > any folder and then go to Tools > Folder Options.
Click the View tab.
In the list, under Hidden Files & folders, do you have the options for switching to "Show hidden files & folders"?
If not, download This File to your Desktop
Double click on the .vbs file & follow the prompts.
Let me know if that turns on the options for switching to "Show hidden files & folders"

Cheers,

sage5

Hi allenchen,

Lets get these txt files created, so we can see what is going on

Please copy (Ctrl+C) and paste (Ctrl+V) the following text in the code box to Notepad.
Save it to your desktop, make sure the file type is All File and name it RegExport2.bat

echo off
reg query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer" /s > C:\hidden1.txt
reg query "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced" /s > C:\hidden2.txt
exit

Double click RegExport2.bat A window will open and close. This is normal.
Please paste me the text from C:\hidden1.txt & C:\hidden2.txt

Hi allenchen,


Perhaps some system files have been messed up in the infection or fix.

System File Checker:
  • Go to Start > Run and type sfc /scannow (Note the space between the c & the /)
  • /scannow starts the System File Checker immediately.
  • You will probably need your Windows XP CD to be handy as it may be required.
    If you have Service Pack 2 installed, you will need the SP2 version of the CD. This can be done with a borrowed CD, if you don't have one.
  • Allow the scan to run and when complete reboot the system

Let me know if that fixes the hidden files issue.
