HI
IHAVE BEEN VISISTED BY A TROJAN WHICH APPEARS TO HAVE WIPED OUT ALL MY NETWORK ADAPTER DRIVERS & WHEN I TRY TO REINSTALL from the system CD I get a message in the final dialogue box saying it cannot find better than are installed. They remain with yellow question marks in the Device manager and are not working. Any ideas?
Thanks
Bill Crying or Very sad

Are you 100% sure that you have the correct drivers on the CD for the network adapter? If you know what the network adapter is, try downloading the drivers on a different PC and transfer them across and install them.

If you have activated a trojan on your system, all sorts of thins can happen. It might be worth posting a HijackThis log so we can check nothing malicious is running.

I have the same problem on a laptop. The user of the laptop ran the .exe file from the DHL virus email. I have used Kapsersky, auperantiapyware and a-squared in an attempt to remove the infections. I now have network adaptor problem. I have copied my Hijackthis file below. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi freakX, welcome to the forums!

There is nothing obvious from the HijackThis log, can you post another from Normal Mode?

Also, can you tell me exactly what you get in the Network Adapters section of Device Manager both in Safe Mode and Normal Mode?

Hi SoftStag, thank you for the welcome.

Unfortunately I have had to reinstall the OS as I needed to have the laptop ready for 1700 tonight.
Some info on the problem for future refernce;

The Network Adaptors Section displayed an exclamation mark on each adaptor - 1394/LAN/Wireless/Mini Ports.
In safe mode it did not display the exclamation mark - the reason I believe is the status is unavailable in Safe mode.

Alas, I have no Hijackthis log in normal mode

Tried uninstalling the adaptors and reinstalling, same problem.
Tried using new drivers from a different machine, same problem.
Performed an XP Pro repair - fixed the adaptor problem but as expected, caused me problem swith opther software installed.

Thanks for your help, much appreciated when frustrating problems like this occur Smile

Thanks bill brown for your info Smile

Hi freakX, thanks for getting back to us with what you did.

It is a shame we couldn't get to the bottom of this, but at least you got it working Smile
