Laptop with XP SP3 has no connectivity with browser or email over wire line DSL. XP diagnostics says "error 12029. No HTTP connectivity". The line is good since I can get connectivity just fine when using a 2nd computer and a wireless connection to the same modem.

The Network Connections page in Control Panel shows LAN connection status as "enabled" on 2-wire gateway. The Broadband status shows "connected and firewalled". I tried creating a new connection, but that had the same problem.

I used Hijack This and other tools to clean some trojans and malware, but of course, I may have missed something that is locking up my port.

Thanks in advance for your help :)

I suggest that you start a new topic in the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal area.

Before you start a new topic click on this link --> Malware and Spyware Cleaning Guide, Please read before starting a new topic. This will give you a few preparations to make, as well as instruction for posting your OTListIt2 log.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
