    Hi!
    My friend has some problems.. I've removed some potentially dangerous application, some trojans, and worms from her computer.. After reboot I can connect to the Internet but I cannot open any sites, or update NOD32, nothing.. Connection runs, but it's dead.. What's happened? How to repair it? Please help me, it is important.. Thanks for your advices...

    My guess: you could try the WinSockFix utility to reset Winsock. The killed spyware might have taken part of Winsock with themselves into the grave. (You'll have to reinstall any LSP using applications, like IMON, NetLimiter and some firewalls).

    Edit: of course, download it on another computer and get it to her computer via a floppy or other removable media.

    Yes, it claims to be. It supports 95, 98 and ME as well. (Although I only tried it on XP.)

    Here is a direct link. This works, tried myself.
    http://www.tacktech.com/pub/winsockfix/WinsockFix.zip
    (The other one has worked at the time of my previous post o_O )

    To the extent of my knowledge, LSPFix allows you to manually remove Layered Service Providers from the registry (used it previously when Panda AV left a LSP over and it clashed with IMON), but does not provide a reset of Winsock like WinsockFix does. So WinsockFix should be better.

    Edit: above Softpedia link still works. Maybe you tried copying it right into the download manager instead of clicking? it was truncated by the Forum engine so it won't work by copy/paste.

    Good to see, now that your friends computer is clean you may want to take a look at the discussions held HERE and even more HERE. There are system setups HERE.

    Ouwwwwww, so much security programs? I use NOD32, Firewall (XP), Adware, SpywareBlaster.. I suppose it could be enough programs to secure my PC..

    I would look at the Minimum security setup as an Absolute Minimum ;) :D
