Hi I'm having real problems with my laptops internet connection having removed trojan.looksky

I followed the instruction to remove the trojan in safe mode rebooted but now cannot get either my wireless or ethernet to connect to the router. The wireless has a full signal but is left constantly trying to connect and shows the message "invalid IP address". IP and DNS properties are all set to connect automatically. The current IP address given is and the Subnet Mask is The router is working fine for other laptops. I'm currently using Windows XP SP2 and Broadcom 802.11b for my wireless. The Broadcom utility that I had previously used to connect to the internet is also missing from the taskbar and I have no idea how to add it back.

If anyone has any ideas on this it would be a massive help as I've spent the last 24 hours trying to get rid of the trojan only for this to happen
