After removing a few different varieties of malware from the wife's laptop, including 3 strains of Vundo, the laptop (wireless connection) can no longer see the internet. The 'net was working fine until this. I'm thinking there may still be some sort of infection.
Edit to add info: Internet was working until SuperAntiSpyware was used to remove the Vundo strains along with 2-4 other items. It was after this that the problem started. I removed SAS afterward (leaving the logs and quarantine in place), thinking that it was causing the problem, but to no avail. I'll add in exactly what SAS found here in an edit.
The funny thing is - the laptop hooks up to the wireless router just fine, my PC and the laptop can see each other and transfer files, and the laptop can PING IP addresses (numbers) with no problem. It -cannot- ping by name, which indicates to me that the domain name resolution somehow got hosed.
I've tried the various winsock fixes, rebuilding the tcp/ip stack, flushing the DNS cache, checking all the settings - you name it. The ipconfig /all command report even looks good (all IP numbers correct).
As far as I can tell, the laptop is apparently clean now, but I could still be missing something due to the 'net issues.
Thanks in advance for any assistance!
Edit to add: Laptop is Windows XP Home, SP3
