Vista network interfaces will not obtain DHCP addresses.

A Vista laptop I am working on will not obtain a DHCP address for either the wired or wireless interfaces.  It consistantly configures networking with an APIPA address.  No other computers are having this issue.  I used NETSH to uninstall and re-install IPv4 and reset IPv6, yet it still has the same problem.  Static IPs work fine.

This is a Vista box so there is no way to uninstall TCP/IP via GUI.  I did remove and reinstall it with the netsh command as well as resetting the Winsock and Firewall.  None of that has worked as of yet.

Finally found a solution.  It was Norton 360 and I had to download a removal tool from Symantec to completely remove it.  The utility can be found at:

It fixed the issue once it was removed.
