New member, not sure where exactly to post this:
I have a friends Dell 5500 lattitude laptop. It was given to me in hopes of getting rid of a virus. Well, the virus is gone, however I cannot connect to the internet. I have done all I can think of to fix this (Nuke and pave are not an option, as I have no XP disc, except for an old 98-to-XP upgrade disc), and it seems something is blocking IE/firefox from the wire and wireless, as I am showing a connection, yet cannot obtain IP, gateway addys, etc.
The following is what I have done so far:
The usual MSE and Mbam scans, Combofix, Filepig, Tdsskiller, WinsockLSPfix, off with the restore, safe modes, Etc. Reinstalled all drivers from the dell site, even copied and pasted my entire Windows/system32 drivers folder from my XP machine to his. Have no other ideas on things to try. anyone have any suggestions? All other things on the computer work perfect.
