My computer no longer recognises other computers on the network, It says it can't find the pathway. I ran Spybot and had to restart my computer, and when it did it would not make network connections, any suggestions?

hijack will fit on a floppy, or burn it to a cd.

I want to see if your ip stack is corrupted.

or download this

and run it on the affected pc
