After searching for a way to remove the blue screen "Spyware Infected" desktop, I came across this post on the forum.


After following the instructions to remove it. I was pleased to find that it was successful. However, after my next bootup I completely lost my internet connection. I have taken steps to fix it, IE: power cycle modem, renew IP, even contacted my ISP to see if it was a problem on their end. No luck so far. Is there anything in the post to contriubte to a total loss of internet connection, that I might have missed ?

my guess is that you're malware is not totally gone since individual cases vary. Post your own hijackthis log in the malware forum and have a staff member take a look at it.

:tazz: Realizing that the cleaning and/or removal of certain types of malware
MAY possibly interrupt and/or "kill" an internet connection, I would suggest
you FIRST try downloading from a computer that can connect to the net,
either or both "LSPFIX" and/or "Winsockfix" on to a CD from
www.spychecker.com/program; then put that into your computer to
see if your internet connection gets restored !?
