There is NO HW Issues of any kind theyh ALL checked out. THE LAN is working fine, there are three machines on router and all work fine. This is a SW issue.
I never suggested a HW issue. Firmware and Drivers are SW. They do not get detected in most scans as causing problems, so you need to check and troubleshoot them yourself by trying rollbacks and updates to them. Conflicts in drivers and controllers, installed filters that did not get removed on uninstall and bad updates to drivers are very likely culprits. Relying on scans, as you point out yourself, is pointless in this situation.
Format and or wipe drive is NOT a option, live with it.
not the one who has to live with it. You're the one limiting yourself, but it's certainly your own time to waste.
The COMODO is fully removed and all associated with it is cleaned out.
Obviously there's leftovers somewhere or you system wouldn't show it there:
EXCEPT FOR MS "Firewall" states COMODO firewall in place"
...anyone that thinks that SW cleans or gets out all virus, trojans etc is not in real world.
And yet you're relying on them to tell you you're definitely not infected thus it's a SW issue?
HJT doesn't catch everything either. For instance, it will not detect a Rootkit - which could be the cause of your trouble. There are a few programs that can see them, and only the Malware Techs can guide you on that. Don't assume because some cleaners show you as clean, that you are - take your own advice.
Even Malware techs had no suggestions of merit other then send them hijack logs etc.. and then advised to run standard MS test programs.. Thje HD checks out 100% as does ALL HW so lets not waste time on that area.
I find that very hard to believe. As I said, there are deeper scan programs that can look at things HJT wouldn't see. MS diagnostics are notoriously crap, with the exceptions of sfc and chkdsk - and even they don't work 100% of the time. And as I've been told myself, few people here rely on HJT anymore. That the Malware techs here would only ask for HJT logs is unlikely.
This is some sort of SW issue where PC will NOT talk to the ethernet card as card to router announces connectivity..
Exactly. Firmware, Drivers, system root, registry and a left over filter from comodo (suggested by your first post) are what you should be looking at, since you've looked at everything else.
Please no more suggestions on running various AV's.. tried a few and not much happened there.
Relying on scans from "a few"? You said yourself that relying on scans to remove all infections and problems is ridiculous.
Most scans do not see Rootkits and will not detect corruptions left from some cleanings or missed items in the registry left from an infection. But, believe what you want.
I have NO intention of buying back up drives etc and will NOT hook ANY PC to the infected one for file transfer as NO ONE can assure if it is a virus it will not travel. for NOW PC is off the local area network or if goes on line, ALL Others shut off.
And yet you are so sure that this is not a virus, because all scans you've tried show you as clean and Malware techs have come up with nothing as of yet. Besides the fact that if you're so sure it's an infection, you're posting in the wrong board - no one can help you with that here.
Still wondering if "MS XP Repair" might fix this but not sure exactly what repair would change or fix. 00% of posters never seem to of heard of XP Repair and suspect a lot of needless "Format" was done when not needed.
You should not attempt repair without backing up your files, if you don't want to lose data. Repair wiped my own system, and I've read of that happening to others. Usually due to having a higher SP than is on the install disk. You could try slipstreaming a disk with the higher service pack to perform a clean repair, but I still wouldn't risk it without backing up files first. That said, repair is very successful for many as well.
For now treating the failure "Windows cannot find HTTP" etc same as the seemingly "Format it as no solutions" when we ran into Microsoft Installing Scan issue".. it can be fixed but requires some knowledge of systems.. same for this failure to connect to net.. probably a virus of some sort.. just no one seems to have found it yet...
Appreciate suggestions but they are not acceptable solutions. Will not risk other PC's in data transfer..
The simple fact is, if this is
a rootkit or similar deep infection, your best chance of fixing it is a reinstall. They are incredibly difficult to remove, and usually not 100% successful. If it is an infection and that difficult to find, the chances are it is that kind of deep system infection. Or it's a corruption from an infection. Regardless, you may not be able to completely fix it no matter your understanding of a system. Some things really can only be fixed by a reinstall. But by all means, keep digging. If you find the answer elsewhere before someone here does, post it so we can learn.
, which is why I said you need to keep working with them and exhaust all options there. You have only 2 posts, so it seems you've not bothered to work with them on this at all.
It's either a SW issue, or it's an infection. If you really want to check software issues, then check your firmware and drivers. Check the filter on your LAN. Seems you've tried everything else short of a repair.
