Hello. I started out here with problems with the google redirector malware bug. I was advised to try a fresh installation of windows so I did so. Now things are much worse than before. I cannot connect to the internet at all on this computer. It does not appear to be a problem with my connection either as I am posting this from a computer using the same connection. From what I can gather, it appears to be an issue with a network card driver, whatever that is.

The screen resolution is also stuck at 640x480 (or thereabouts) and 16-colors. No other options are available. Again, the troubleshooter suggests a driver issue and asks to connect to internet to find the proper update, but the aforementioned inability to connect to the 'net makes this impossible. Windows also asks me to make sure the correct monitor is selected, but the model is a Gateway Profile 5.5 and the monitor is built-in so I don't really know how it's connected.

I assume all info needed to figure the specs out is available in the thread I linked to, but if not, I'll look up whatever y'all need to know. Thanks in advance for any advice. :)

Sounds like you need to reinstall all drivers.
