Hope you can help me, you have before with malware.
I have a dlink wireless router and modem with a wired pc and wireless laptop. i recently added a dlink wireless media centre and a netgear san hard disk store. all was well until the addition of the net gear item. this required that the pc be upgarded to xp (home) sp2. upgrade went fine and all was well. today the pc can receive e mail and is on the network but ie doesn't work. laptop still connects fine. the pc is picking up its ip from the router via dhcp but i can't ping the router from the pc. i'm sure this is something basic. i killed off zone alarm yesterday as that seemed to be a problem but all was well after that. i've tried turning off ms firewall and mcafee vscan but still can't get out on ie. i tried loading firefox but couldn't get out either.
any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
i don't think this is malware i ran ewido, ms (giant) anti spyware and ad aware prior to the upgrade and all was clean.
