Another Internet connection issue

I have just cleaned my windows xp pc from what, I think, was W32:sassar virus. I used the Avast webcleaner, followed by the Avast virus-checker, as I could not get onto the UK Symantec website. Norton did not detect the virus, although it was updated only a few days before.

The computer seems to function normally except for the internet connection, which doesn't always connect. To disconnect I have to physically unplug the modem from the wall-socket.Nothing happens if i click on the icon in the task-bar. The network connections window shows a 1394 connection AND a 1394 connection 2. Could this be part of the Problem? I notice that, by 'right-clicking', one of these is enabled and the other disabled.

Any help gratefully received!

1394 is IEEE 1394 or Firewire. It is the faster connection port for IPod or digital video

if you have original windows CD, you can do a repair installtion

Many thanks TomJerry.

No, I haven't the original windows CD - only the repair CD which came from Mesh and may be the same and do the trick. I'll check it out when I have solved the immediate problems - may come back to the forum later on this.

Hurray! I tried click here,
as suggested by TomJerry and am now back on line with updated Norton files. Very many thanks - it has saved me £40, as I was on the verge of calling in the experts.
