I haven't been on here for years which is a good thing as I have managed to keep all our computers going without an issue. A friend of mine told me she was going to take her son's laptop to PC World to get it fixed because it was virused out. I said I would have a look. I have done some scans and it was horribly infected but I have got rid of everything it would seem although I can't fix a bug at the beginning to do with Corefoundation.dll even though I did it correctly, but that is not an issue really.
However, what is an issue is that prior to the virus scans and removing Norton, AVG and installing Avast I could connect to the internet via my network, but now I can't. I can't even connect by hard wiring it (taking the cable from the router and plugging it in directly).
I have Googled this and so far I have diable IpV 6, reset the TCP/IP stack, done IP release and IP renew and some other stuff (like drink a few beers and some wine) and still the bloody thing won't connect - oh yes I disabled the HP help thing too. I have disabled and renabled the Ipv 6 driver too.
The laptop is an HP Pavilion DV6-1330sa.
I must be doing something very silly (apart from trying to help) what is it? I have disable the MS firewalls too and that made no difference. In XP I am sure I would go into the network and enable the local area connection or similar but can't find that.
