Sorry, if this was posted before, I haven't quite figured out how to successfully search.

My roomate's computer a recent-ish HP notebook running vista recently encountered this problem, I couldn't browse on it, in a any browser or ping from the Command Prompt, being an OSX user, I'm not that familiar with vista. Through googling I have found people encountering similar problems when attempting to uninstall Anti Virus Software, but I have a suspicion that in this case it might be something more malicious.

Any ideas?

Has he tried using System Restore or System Restore from a command prompt in Safe Mode to return to a previous state before his problems began?
