Hello peeps I'm back the only proper way to defeat new dot net is as follows

First, Download LSPFix.exe to a convenient location.  Do NOT run this program.  This is only to be used if you lose Internet Access after removing NewDotNet.

To Get rid of NewDotNet, go to:

Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs and remove the following:

New.Net Applications or New.Net Domains (anything that says New.Net)

If it is not there, go here and follow Procedure 4: NewDotNet Removal Procedure 4.

Then delete all newdotnet folders in \program files and run HJT and delete all found refences to newdotnet such as
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ Startup] rundll32 C:\PROGRA~1\NEWDOT~1\NEWDOT~2.DLL,NewDotNetStartup -s

In the event that you lose Internet access after removing New.Net, please double-click LSPFix.exe that you downloaded earlier.  You will see 2 panels.  If there is any file listed in the "Remove" panel on the right-side, leave it as is and just click "Finish>>" then reboot your computer and you should now have access to the Internet.  If nothing is listed under the "Remove Panel", do NOT do anything - just close the program.

Hi to all :)
I have a question regarding this NewDotNet thing  :P
I've just noticed that I have it on my PC, but avast! do not detect it  ???
Did Alwil removed the detection till the problem with removing the registry keys is fixed, or this is new variant?
I've send the file to Alwil, just in case ;)

Hi .:X:M:A:S:.,

This is the best information link I could find on the NEWDOTNET foistware, and how this unwanted program should be qualified, as well as technical info. The link is to be found here:

Just another reason for those without SP2 to install that for XP
(think of the instant restore of the winsock settings through start command prompt, and giving in "netsh winsock reset"(without the brackets, and of course only for XP SP2).
