Hello,

I've been troubleshooting issues with malware for a couple days. After I ran a fix with OTL and the computer rebooted, everything involving networking disappeared from my computer ((nothing in the network folder in control panel, gives error message "The Network Connections Folder was unable to retrieve the list of Network adapters on your machine. Please make sure that the Network Connections service is enabled and running")). Work offline was also checked. Additionally, my desktop adopted a new scheme for the start menu(looks kinda like Win 98).

I've tried several things. First, I went into the command prompt and ran regsvr32 netshell.dll, regsvr32 netcfgx.dll, and regsvr32 netman.dll; after a restart it produced no changes. I proceeded to uninstall the network driver from device manager and let it reboot. That didn't work. The last thing I just did was go into My PC, Manage > Services: Network connections, PnP, Remote Access Connection Manager, and Telephony are all not started. When I try to start them, I get error 1083.

I need to fix my networking problem so I can get back on the internet and fix my malware problem. Please help!

Please delete this topic. Malware specialist told me to post in the XP forum. That being said, please contribute there if you have advice.
