Assume this is malware/TDSS rootkit until proved otherwise.

TDSSkiller should remove the problem, as suggested by MASQUERAID's link above, and you can download it from here:

Download the file TDSSKiller.zip and extract it into a folder
Execute the file TDSSKiller.exe.
Wait for the scan and disinfection process to be over.
Close all programs and press “Y” key to restart your computer.

I have gotten past that original problem by cleaning up all the malware on the sytem;
but  still cannot set the IIP auto addresssing to work.
Am still ready to work on that part of the problem and am using a "fixed" IP address for the time being.

Are you using a router?
If yes, try resetting it by removing the routers power, waiting a minute or two, then re-apply the power ...effectively you are doing a router reboot.

If unsuccessful, try resetting the router (with power applied) by depressing the small reset button, usually located at the rear of the unit.  You may have a router document describing this action.

If no router, the Malware you detected and cleaned could have modified your XP network and Winsock settings.
To reset Winsock, type the following command at a command prompt, and press ENTER:
netsh reset winsock

Alternatively follow the steps in the Fix it wizard:
