Got a nasty virus/spyware which has disabled ability to get online. Is it possible this thing messed up the HTTP ports, and how can I change that? I'm presently running cleaners on the hard drive which I extracted. But if it's in the registry, that won't help. Any ideas?

Check your hosts file and use malwarebytes.org anti-malware, it will at least detect stuff that has infiltrated your TCP/IP driver stack.

Any idea of a name or family tpe of your malware yet?

By loading its own driver that hooks into your TCP/IP driver stack. It does quite early in the boot process. You may have been hit by a rootkit.

How to prevent reformat? By making a regular complete image of your system disk.

Are there programs which can eradicate rootkit junk?

after you re-format, you should make an image of what you do... then next time they come to you with a futzed up system, just re-image.
