Ok, I'm going to explain my problem from the get go to provide as much information as possible. My wireless has always worked fine, then in class today I had a prof talking about a MSN Sniffer program while discussing internet security issues. For fun I installed the program and ran it, haha I can see your msn, fun over with. So I uninstalled it by the end of class. The program was NGS MSN Sniffer, it came attached with winPcap, a cache collecting program. I'm pretty sure this is where the problem is sourced from. I should have been smarter than to install a software from a sketchy site clearly designed for malignant purposes I know, but I figured if my prof mentioned it, that somehow made it better.

After removing it I got home and my wireless internet no longer worked, coming up with the error message "can not renew your IP".
So I went into network connections and switched the Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) to Alternate Configuration/User configured and manually use the IP 192.168.0.2. This made the internet connect and show full connectivity, but still when I actually brought up the browser nothing came up.

When I ran the repair again on the wireless it slowed down again at renewing IP, and then came up with the error message "following action cannot be completed: Clearing the ARP cache".

So from the I manually ran the cmd 'netsh interface ip delete arpcache' to manually clear the arp cache, but it has had no apparent effect, and the same message comes up when I run the repair (cannot clear arp cache).

Does anyone have any idea about what the next step I can take to resolve this issue is? Will I have to uninstall and re-install my wireless drivers? (don't have any of the disks).

Oh and before anything else I tried a system restore to no avail. Help me please!
