Spyware has stop internet access and I cannot fix it.

Last Modified: 2013-11-13
I have a computer I am helping a friend with that had a LOT of Spyware on it. I cleaned it up and using a couple of different utilities and I still cannot access the internet.

I believe the winsock setting are screwy and I have run both of the LSP fix tools and the WinsockFix.Zip solution and I still cannot access the internet.
I can connect to other machines shares and printers on the network.
IE Explorer, firefox and outher utilities cannot reach the internet.
I can ping IP and Resolve URL's in DOS.
The machines nic is set to DHCP

In Spyware Doctor I run the LSP protection and it goes thru the winsock stuff and verifies it is OK.

Any ideas as I am really baffled
