Alright, I did a hard reboot after Combat Arms froze, and now my Local Area Connection is going wild. I have my WLAN working fine, but heres what the LAC does: It pops up a message from the try saying " Local Area Connection This connection has limited or no connectivity. You might not be able to access the Internet of some network resources. For more information, click this message. Then the box closes, for a millisecond it tries to re-establish connectivity, and fails. It has been doing this over and over for the last half hour. Is some virus, trojan, or otherwise causing it to do this? Or do I just need to restart? I did a scan with Ad-Aware Free Anniversary Edition and it found only cookies. I'd do a scan with Avast but that's SLOW AS HELL. I'm gonna try a reboot.

Update: I rebooted. Now I've got an error from windows saying: Windows - System Error: There is an IP address conflict with another system on the network" or something like that. Any advice?

Are you using wireless?
Reset your modem/router and give it a strong password
