Recovering from virus attack

  ianeon 12:42 05 Apr 2009

Good morning - I run XP Pro - I have recently been infected with various bugs - I have managed to get rid of them using Super Anti-spyware( brilliant programme ) and AVG anti-virus programme.
Unfortunately parts of my computer aren't now working. These are WINDOWS DEFENDER, WINDOWS UPDATE, SYSTEM RESTORE and INTERNET EXPLORER. I am looking for some general advice on how to return my computer to its normal set-up. Can anyone help ? - Thank you for your time - Ian

If you`ve done a reboot and the abve stil;l applies you still have a problem. Download Malwarebytes Free from click here and run it on a quick scan first after updating.

Thank you for that - I ran Malwarebytes - but that didn't solve my problem

Sometimes when you remove a virus you also remove a LSP Link download this free LSP fix and run it,

No Internet connection so you will have to use a different computer to download it then put it on a CD/USB then put it on the Computer that has not Internet connection

Run it to see if there is a LSP problem

click here

LSP-Fix helps you to correct Internet connection problems resulting from buggy or improperly-removed Layered Service Provider (LSP) software

mfletch - thank you for that, but I have an internet connection. Because Internet Explorer stopped working I am using Google Chrome and Firefox.
As I said my main problems are Windows Update and System Restore not working.

mfletch - Thank you, apologies for my explanations.
I tried IE8 but I get the same message - got to close because of an error - Error number is 0x80070002 - I googled that and tried the various solutions to no avail

brundle - I tried "DialaFix" - it indicated that lots of dlls were unrecognised and that I should E-Mail them for a solution - which I will later - thank you for that link, it seems a very intersting prog.
