After removing a virus with MBAM the computer cannot access the Internet through Internet Explorer or Explorer. The computer is running XP Home and started with IE6. Ran SFC /scannow with no success. Then upgraded to IE 7 hoping to repair IE with no success. Tried using to eliminate the DNS server with same results. Other computers work fine on the same cat 4 cable.

ipconfig/all shows all necessary IPs and subnet masks. Can ping and trcert Yahoo with Cannot ping www.Yahoo.com.

Any suggestions or ideas?

2. Click Tools, and then click Internet Options.
3. Click the Connections tab.
4. Under Local Area Network (LAN) settings, click LAN settings.
5. In the window that opens, Uncheck all boxes and click OK.
