    This is an XP system with all patches made, sitting behind a firewall using a SAMBA (ClearOS) domain controller for shared drives and NETLOGON.

    I was downloading a supposedly 'safe' tool from cnet and AVG jumped in to protect me. Three malwares moved to the vault. But I noticed that my shared drives were no longer available. I rebooted and no network access. Just the zeroconf IP addressing. I rebooted with a linux liveCD (Fedora 18 i386) and networking works fine, so the problem is in the XP software.

    Networking properties show packets outbound, but nothing inbound; I suspect the outbound are DHCP requests.

    So where do I look to get networking going again?

    thanks for any help. My wife is not too pleased with this computer being down and having to use another computer to access her documents.
