i have a big problem here. i got infected with a spyware last night and had just finally removed it. i have no idea wat happened during the removal. i used spysweeper to sweep it. it was not able to remove it. so i boot my comp and delete the files manually then back to windows to delete the registries the spyware left.
after that, i realise that my computer pop up a message saying that i have to install a TCP/IP protocool. i find it weird because i had it all the while and i cant get online. since it said that, i went to recreate it. but it the message still appears and i still cannot get into the internet. when i look at the 'Support' tab in the 'Local Connection Status', i notice that the address type row shows 'Automatic Private Address'. My settings for my TCP/IP has similar settings to the previous one and it suppose to be 'Assigned by DHCP'. I tried many ways but it still doesnt work as it don get back to that Assigned by DHCP status. does anybody know wat's going on?
i had reinstalled my windows...what else could be the problem?
i have a SMC router and running on winxp and using cable.
thanks a million...

Spysweeper is your inital problem.  This program has been known to cause other problems... it apparently blew up your tcp/ip stack.  Try running winsock fix for the appropriate OS currently being used.  This fix works most of the time, but in some cases windows has needed to be reinstalled.
