Something happened the other day when the latest MS updates were received and I restarted. The computer became unpredictable (some programs would start on demand, others wouldn't). Nothing seemed to follow any pattern.

Tech guy at Dell walked me through everything and couldn't figure anything out. He wanted to do a re-install of windows but I stopped short of that - for now.

I did find a microsoft.windows.redirectedhosts with spybot and removed it. I did a repair of windows twice.

Finally, it is acting more stable but when I boot up and then log-on I'm not able to connect to the internet for up to 30 minutes. If I just sit and do nothing it eventually connects and everything seems to work fine.

I've run spybot, malwarebytes and everything seems to be clean.

When I opened event viewer there are multiple entries of this:

The Internet Connection Sharing (ICS) service depends on the Remote Access Connection Manager service which failed to start because of the following error:
The dependency service or group failed to start.

I just tried to go into services to manually start RACM and when I did everything fired up but I don't know if that was coincidental or not.

Anyone have any ideas? I posted a query in the malware section 3 days ago but haven't heard back from anyone yet. I'm not sure at this point where the best forum is.

Thanks for your consideration!

Nic

Hi -

2 recent threads here in Windows 7 / Vista -

[SOLVED] Problems following Windows Update This Morning (October 20, 2010)

Windows 7 Unable to connect to Internet

Boot into SAFEMODE w/ Networking and see if you can connect to Internet there. Tap F8 key repeatedly during boot-up.

Regards. . .

Yes, those are my threads from the other day.

I experience the same slow processing and delay connecting in both regular mode and safe mode.

I was not able to complete a restore intially.

Per my PM, this thread is now closed.

You can request thread be re-opened after Security declares your system clean.
