Hi

I have a similar problem which was discussed earlier but none of the solutions explained here solved my problem. After i install Service Pack 2 my windows explorer get slower and device manager empty and No ethernet card seems in my network connections,however all things work fine. I checked my registery entries and i tried aproposfix etc. For example aproposfix couldnt fix anything just give the log below:
Log of AproposFix v1.1

************

Running from directory:
C:\aproposfix

************



Registry entries found:

No service found!

Removing hidden folder:

Deleting files:


Backing up files:

Removing registry entries:

Done!

Finished!


What can i do next?

Thanks..

I think it is advisable that you follow the instructions at the top of the malware foirum rather than trying to work through this yourself...some of these are quite tricky and we have the best malware people on the internet who can get you back up and ruinning.

That means following the steps in the thread READ THIS FIRST and then posting a hijackthis log
