Lost internet connectivity as a result of XP 2012 SECURITY PROTECTION

My computer was recently infected by the XP Security 2012 virus. In order to remove it, I followed the instructions given on bleepingcomputer, which involved utilizing RKill and then Malwarebytes. After all was said and done and the malware was gone, I discovered that I could not connect to the internet.

This is a problem that I have had before; previously I lost netbt.sys, which was quarantined during the system scan. I added that file back into my registry using the instructions I received last time. However, now I can connect to the internet, but once it's connected I'm unable to actually access any websites. Under my device manager, the TCP/IP Protocol Driver is not working, and I see error messages under Serial, Parport & NetBios over tcipip.

How would you recommend that I proceed?

Thank you

Go back to your old thread and post there. Have you tried a System Restore to a date when it worked?
