Windows XP Home Can't Get an IP Address

I'm working on a Windows XP Home box that suddenly can't get an IP address.  The Local Area Connection is perpetually in 'Acquiring IP Address' mode, but it never picks one up.  I tried uninstalling and reinstalling TCP/IP, uninstalling and reinstalling SP2, using a different network cable, connecting to a different network, all to no avail.  I know for a fact that it's not a hardware issue, because I even bought a new network adapter and tried that.  It *may* be a virus or something corrupter in the registry, but I'm not sure.  Here is the error I'm getting in the Event Viewer under System:

"The Remote Access Connection Manager service terminated with service-specific error 3221356592 (0xC0020030)"

As a sidenote, the owner of this machine said that this problem "just started happening" and that everything was fine beforehand.  According to them, no major changes took place before the problem started to occur.

Any help you could provide would be greaty appreciated.
