I need help bad, I have tried everything I know to do.


I have a computer here that wont do anything. It wont go online, I have tried different net cards. I put in a wireless card and it wont even bring up the network connector to attach to a wireless network. When I look at the services they are 95% stopped.


I removed the drive and scanned it in another computer but it doesn't find anything wrong.


System restore does not work. The firewall wall wont even allow me to start it.

I can still install drivers but that's about all i can do.


It was online but really not working right when the owner ran hitmanpro on my recommendation and then it wouldn't go online at all.


before this happened it was scanned with malewatebytes, AVG and spybot.


other than backing p the data and reloading windows 7 64 I don't know what to try next.


does anybody have any ideas?? Please.

Format C: and start over, something is VERY wrong with your install

If you can not do the system restore, then it's time for you to format.. your configuration is screwed up. If you have a restore disc, then you will be able to restore back to where you got the PC on first day as long as your CD drive is accessible.

Sounds like its a rt7lite version, best idea is to reformat with an original windows 7.

Just go with a fresh install. It's so quick these days with Win7/8,


You'll spend much more time pulling your hair out with the current mess you are dealing with, it's just not worth it.

Fastest course of action is to reinstall. There is something hosing that install. It could be malware or rootkit. The only rootkit scanner that was ran was hitman. Try gmer or combofix. Could be a registry hosing you too. Never was a big fan of hitman.

Also a good place to start with troubleshooting is the eventviewer.

Like others have said, the fastest course is a reinstall, but if you're doing this for fun, lets have fun.


Start with a new user profile, throw more rootkit scanners at it, the same people that make Malwarebytes also has a rootkit scanner that seems to work rather well

It's hidden in the beta section of the site.


Reset TCP/IP to try and fix the innernet thing (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/299357)

sfc /scannow never hurt, you know, other then those times it makes things worse.


Regardless though, when you do fix it, still reinstall, because you'll never know what else might be wrong.

If you decide not to reinstall your operating system, perhaps you should run TDSSKiller, an anti-rootkit utility devloped by Kaspersky.

Try Windows Repair (All in one) from Tweaking.com  http://www.tweaking....all_in_one.html


I've been able to use it to repair issues like the one you are describing many times...


Message me if you have any questions on using it, but its really simple, so I don't think you should have many issues running it.

I usually am one of the last to ever recommend a fresh install, but your stuff sounds WAY to messed up to ever just fix correctly.


Not much of any other choice. :(

I share the sentiment with most users here, your best an least troublesome option would be a reformat, and reinstall,
