Windows 7: PROBLEM: PC Tools 6.1.0.25 with Win7 64 bit removal

I just wandered in, but if i understand correctly, the uninstall goes fine, but after, you have no internet access?

Have you tried SFC /scannow ?

Could possibly be a incorrectly modified network file or system file, on PC Tool's behalf.

Problem solved - Thanks guys!

How I did it:

Restarted in safe mode, right clicked in the system tray and existed the antivirus software.

Ran services.msc to check nothing from PC Tools was running.

Uninstalled the PC Tools antivirus from control panel - it came up with the same error it always did about not finding PCTcFFix64.exe. Ignored this, dropped to the registry to check all the keys were removed. There was a key at HKEY/Local.../WOW6432Node/Microsoft/Tracing/PC Tools Antivirus ... RASMANCS which I also removed.

Rebooted - no internet through the web browser as usual.

This is bit I did different, I right clicked on cmd and ran it as an administator. Ran 'netsh winsock reset' which asked me to reboot.

Rebooted, and everything is a-ok again.
Thanks a lot for all the help guys (and girls).

Now to spread the word to those I found having the same problem.

Ah-ha!

The PCTLsp.dll is a PC Tools Layered Service Provider.

This file is part of PC Tools Content Filter. PCTLsp.dll is developed by PC Tools Research Pty Ltd.. PCTLsp.dll is usually located in the %PROGRAM_FILES% sub-folder and its usual size is 182,152 bytes
So it adds itself as a layered service provider ... no wonder you lost your Internet connection.

Intresting, although I'm wondering exactly where it is (can't find it) and should I delete it if I find it?

I'm still using the Pc Tools firewall, and if it's still on my system it's not doing any harm at the mo, so might leave it well alone.

You can download LSPfix here: Bleeping Computer Downloads: LSP-Fix
Since you have your Internet connection back you may want to just ignore this.
