When I reboot, Trend Micro Spyware pops up and says, hey, we noticed your network config is damaged, would you like us to repair? And of course, I click, Sure please do, and then reboot, and continue in that nasty vicious circle. I have tried everything I can think of, short of reinstalling Windows, which I suppose I can do, but would rather not. I am 99% sure the spyware app is responsible.
Does anyone have any similar experience? Suggestions? Am I hosed and just need to bite the bullet? If I boot from a Windows XP pro CD, any chance I can try reinstalling TCP/IP or something? The option to uninstall TCP/IP is greyed out and not available or I would have tried that. I am getting an IP address assigned, but can't even ping my gateway, whether thought my router or direct to the cable modem.
