Ping garbled on XP

Working on friends computer. Stuff with spyware. Got rid of all of it.
Updated to sp1.

Somewhere along the way I lost internet connectivity.
I can no longer get a DHCP address, but I gave a static ip address i can ping inside and outside the network.

But I can do nothing else, like say ftp or http to an internal server.

Also, the ping are garbled meaning it says something like
c:\ping 192.168.0.1

Pinging > with 32 bytes of data:

Reply from 192.168.0.1: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=127

Ping statistics from for $#@#

The $#@# is actually a 'O' an 'u with an accent' and a 'heart'

pinging different ip addresses gives different garbled chars.

No firewall software is running that I can tell.

ideas?
