Hi

My system specs: Win XP Home with SP1.

I am having problems connecting to the internet from programs such as
msn messenger, mozilla firefox,various ftp programs and updates.

Only IE (6.0) and WindowsUpdate are the programs with internet access.
When I try to ping on any IP address (except 127.0.0.1), I am getting
the error 65:
"PING: transmit failed, error code 65."

At the time this problem started:

1. the computer had quite a few viruses on it (like
DerBiz/Trojan.Win32.Dialer.gp).

2. we tried to install SP2, but it caused problems with ZoneAlarm and
system became very slow. So we uninstalled it.

So far, I uninstalled ZoneAlarm, switched off firewalls, checked
against viruses and spyware, and did system restore. No luck.

Many thanks in advance!

The spyware may have damaged your winsock, or dns.

the netsh command in SP2 can rebuild your Winsock. Open the command prompt and type: netsh winsock reset , then press ENTER.

it sounds like your behind a proxy of some kind, as proxys will stop
mostly every thing except http and https, some will alow for ftp and
very few alow for IM networks unless the IM client can operate thoguht
the http and https ports, and the fact you carnt ping your self
surgests that 127.0.0.1 got deleted from your "Do not use proxy for
these sites:" dialog box.

But thats imposible if your not using a proxy, of course there is
always the posability that you have a site filter on which actualy
runs a proxy localy.

Can you give more information about your internet settings.

Note: Where you said "My system specs" you actualy ment "My
Operating System"
