Can't see workgroup computers, NetBT problem?

After a virus infection my XP computer I can't "see" computers in the workgroup. The event log says there is a problem with NetBT. I have run the SFC tool. I thought there was a way to completely reload the TCP/IP stack that had something to do with uninstalling the network adapter and then reinstalling it but I don't remember the process.

I can ping another PC by IP address but not by computer name.

Any ideas would be appreciated.
