Over in the Malware Removal forum, I received invaluable help in removing 2 viruses (thread here--> http://www.geekstogo...tk-t220007.html )
The way I discovered this problem was when I couldn't connect to the 'net. After first trying Dell, then Verizon FiOS, they felt it was a virus, however after cleaning the system I still cannot connect.
If at the command prompt I type “ipconfig” it shows my IP as 0.0.0.0. An 'ipconfig /release' brings back the message that it has already been released.
And If I do an “ipconfig /renew” I get the following message:
“An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : The RPC server is unavailable.”
Any help is appreciated!
