Hello! Looks like this is an issue that is cropping up quite a bit, but it seems that after my home desktop contracted XP Security 2012, it lost access to the internet. Wireless network still works, other wireless devices still work (like this laptop), but no dice for the desktop. I removed the virus by transferring the programs via usb--and still not internet access, sadly. Computer just keeps "Acquiring Network Address".
Yes...I am having the same issue. Am running the XP checkdisk as I type (typing on desktop..laptop afflicted) and hoping that will clear up some issues. Any idea how this spreads? Email? Websites?
