Windows XP can not get network connection/ IP Address
Posted on 2011-02-19
I have a client PC with Windows XP on it. We can not get an IP Address on the computer when it is set to get an IP automatically. It just keeps trying to Acquire a network address.
If I set the IP to static it gets an IP address but there is no Internet.
I changed the network card to rule that out but same thing.
I have installed Adaware, Spybot, Superantispyware and Malwarebytes and they have picked up some things, but still no network connection.
The other thing is that if I set in a static IP address it keeps coming up saying I must shut down and restart the computer before the settings take effect.
I am presuming there is a virus or spyware causing all of this but I just cant find it.
Has anyne else come across such an issue
