Computer can't connect to internet after running Window Repair
« on: December 15, 2011, 12:50:33 AM »
I got the Win7 Internet Security 2012 virus and was able to remove it but it screwed up Base Filtering Engine. I ran Tweaking.com - Windows Repair (All in One) v1.5.4 and now I can't get internet access. It will connect to the network but can't get internet access.

My computer is running Windows 7 Profession 32bit.

I cleaned that virus off of 3 machines this week on my customers already.

On one Windows XP machine the virus destroyed the DHCP service, the reg keys where gone. Nothing could fix it but a reinstall.
The 2 others where Win 7. I ran my windows repair on both and had no trouble.

So lets see if we can find out whats going on with yours. :wink:

Does your network icon by your clock have a yellow !

Also open a command window.

Put in ipconfig. What local IP info do you get.

Then in the command window try these 2 commands

ping google.com
and
ping 8.8.8.8

Let me know the results :-)

Thanks for the response but leaving it for a day and restarting it a couple times seems to have fixed it. I wish I knew how though...
