I posted in this thread about this problem in the "Malware Removal - HiJackThis Logs Go Here" forum which can be found here just for reference. greyknight17 referred me to post in this forum. So here I am.

This is the situation. All of a sudden my desktop just can't connect to the internet. I am using a wireless router. The desktop connects through it. And my laptop, which is what I'm using now to post, connects to the same wireless router. My laptop only connects through wireless. I have no extra cable to try connecting through cable. And the cable (connecting the router and the desktop) is deep in the 'jungle' of wires. So I'd say only my desktop can't connect through cable. (:

It was alright all along. I called my computer administrator to consult on what to do. Did many resets/re-boot on the computer. Still can't. And I think I have just got back the same virus I had before. The msn error produced when I try to log in is exactly the same as before when I had a virus the previous time. I've uploaded a picture. Please have a look.

on the desktop do start >run > cmd > ipconfig /all and report the results

any chance of digging that cable out and trying the laptop with it? (i've got a headlamp and a machette you can borrow if you need them)
