First thing I should do is to get rid of all restrictions in the registry. Maybe then you'll be able to delete any references to comload. As far as I know comload doesn't install itself into the winsock stack, but if it does, then this might be a new variant.
If that doesn't do the trick then your next option is MSCONFIG. Disable the offending lines (so that they won't start at next boot) and check if the culprit files let themselves be deleted then.
About the corrupt TCP/IP stack, if it's really broken (check to make sure cos AOL takes up a lot of TCP/IP connections for itself), then you are luckily enough to run a DOS-based OS (who ever said that the oldies were bad), and there's a sneaky way of fixing things. First, check your machine for the following map C:\winodws\options\cabs or C:\windows\options\install. If it's there, then count your blessings. If not, look up your Windows installation CD, insert it and copy it's contents to a temporary folder.
Next thing: delete the following reg keys:
Do an F3 search for the following entries:
Write down the path of each file and boot into DOS and delete those files.
Next thing: go to C:\windows\options\cabs\setup.exe (or C:\windows\options\install\setup.exe or your temporary folder) and run the setup to "reinstall" windows. what we have done is ripping out any corrupt files and reg keys and replaced them with fresh ones.
If you can connect to the internet again, then I'd suggest the following URL's
http://patrick.kolla.de get spybot search & destroy
http://www.wilderssecurity.net/spywareblaster.html get spywareblaster
http://www.wilderssecurity.net/spywareguard.html get spywareguard
http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php get hijackthis
and of course http://www.lavasoftusa.com for Adaware 6, but make sure you run spybot first and then and only then adaware the next time you do a spyware-scan.
Also, get a good trojan scanner like BOclean 4.1 , TDS 3 or trojanhunter 3.5, trial or full version, cos, correct me if I'm wrong but I'm guess that nettrans is a familiar trojan. But it also can be the settings file of AOL.
Hope this helps
