Internet/LAN on Adminstrator-account not working anymore-Winxp
Tried to run MBSA with updatesettings without success. One tip was running Windows update -Service again. But in the service-console its not present.
another tip was to run Combofix to get Windows Update Service back but failed. combofix first didnt run since recovery console was not installed. its now installed and combofix was running.
When running MBSA with updatesetting it told i had two administratior-accounts. yet restricted one was set as administrator, then changed.
Inbetween when running Combofix again it said its outdated for today. started yesterday.
Thought better saving to Desktop of admin-account. Then i recognized i couldnt access internet anymore.
systemrecovery didnt help. What next?
For those using Microsoft windows, follow the steps below :
Click on start menu>RUN and type
Right click the appropriate connection and click repair.
UPDATE: COULDNT REPAIR
Click start menu >RUN, type
netsh winsock reset
and then click ok
Command prompt flashes,
restart your computer.

maybe these steps:
but on my pc only relat4ed to admin.account.
meanwhile reinstalled lan-networkdriver.
proxyservery denies connection. no matter which browser, FF, maxthon 3, opera. maxthon worked 2 days ago.
during a cleaning-process i had also done this by dec 31.:
maybe could have to do with some services which i had shut down much earlier 12 days ago?
computer browser, Indexing Service,IPSEC Services, UPlnPlay Device Host, Windows Time
will now check all of them again.

Have now given up. Set a new Admin-account
Unbelievable but true i could solve the blocked internet-access in admin-account.
1. accidentally run adwcleaner 6.047(latest possible for winxp) before malwarebytes(here there is also a latest possible version for winxp) studied again which options should be set before cleaning(after running adwcleaner).
there one can see TCP/IP-Setting in the options. it should be left alone. after a second run which had found again Iobit-ASCdownloader(had to delete it manually) i check TCP/IP-Setting and clicked recover. normally ok.
and then YES YES YES internet access again. during dealing with adwcleaner MSsecurity Essentials-Liveprotection was disabled.
Yes when all scans are finished i will replace MSSE by clamwin. clamsentinel will not be installed since its blocking too much. yes have found out how to unblock. maybe i will use it again later.
Being patient saved me a lot during my over 25 years old computer-life starting with IMB 286.
