Computer Security & Viruses/Malware affected programme - cannot return to previous restore point


Hello Brian - hope you can help

I am running Windows XP SP3 and IE 8

I had an update or install of something Ė I believe it could have been Iobit and now it has affected the software that I use to access my company website (Virtual PC).  I now get the message that Forefront has not installed all the components and therefore I cannot log in.

I have tried several times to go back to previous restore points - it says it has restored to previous point but it hasn't. I've run this in safe mode along with Malwarebytes, Spybot search and destroy and Spyware blaster and cleaned up everything but still can't access my work site. Have just installed Avast and that didnít find anything

Hijack log below.  Thanks

Hi Sheila

Sorry for the delay in getting to your question.  I've run into this problem before, where removal of certain malware can cause XP's winsock settings to become corrupted.  Try using the program Winsock Fix:

Run the programme, click to back up the reg files, then click the button to fix the winsock.  Hopefully you will now be able to access your site.  Let me know if this does not work for you.
