After removing mulitple viruses I cannot get an IP.  Tried Winsock tools, removing nic from device mgr, uninstalling tcp/ip etc.  Any ideas on how to rebuild the IP system once it's corrupted.  Sony Vaio w/ XP.

Thanks for any ideas.

Does it obtain the IP but only send data?

Try running these commands from a command prompt.
NETSH INT IP RESET C:\RESETLOG.TXT
NETSH WINSOCK RESET CATALOG

The 2nd requires XP SP2 and you will have to reboot after the completion of the command

If neither of these work, then google and download COMBOFIX and follow its instructions.  As always make sure your data is backed up before messing with your system.  I have had success with combo fix with the repair console.

The above commands are a portion of what the WinsockFix tool does, which they already ran with no luck :(

Is this the same case with both the wifi and wired connections??

Ran Combofix but still no go.  Looks like I'll be reimaging drive, unless you have any other options.

Thanks for the help.

The first thing I would have you do before re-imaging it is this:

1. Run a hardware diagnostics on the laptop (if it is a DELL you should be able to hit F12 and run it there)
2. Did you ever answer my question about wether this issue is with both the wifi and wired lan card?
3. Install a PCMCIA network card to see if this works??

Got it.  Residual Norton Internet Security files were causing the problem.  The user had installed another AV product.  Ran the Norton removal tool and it's back up.  Thanks for all the help.
