There are a few things you can check, and a few things to try.

First make sure that your network card is still installed and functioning properly. Check to make sure the light is on, on the back where the network cable plugs in (assuming you're not using dial-up). Check in your control panel to see if the card is still installed and that there are no errors.

There are some other things you could try, but I'd need more information before telling you how to do this. Are you using dial up? If not do you have a router or are you connected straight to the modem?

its a wireless connection. the card is inside the laptop. no im not using dial up. one thing i forgot to tell you. If i right click on the 2 computer sybol thing on the right of my task bar, its the network symbol or something and click on "View available wireless networks" I see nothing so then i go to "advanced" I see the network im trying to connect to under "preffered networks" but it has a red x through it so i click on "refresh" and then it has a blue circle around it, i think that means is ok because on this computer im using to type this it has a blue cirlce. I don't know what i do from there to connect to the network.

Its a linksys network. I have an internal wireless card that used to work until the problem with ad-aware happened.

Try these three fixes in this order. Reboot after each one and see if your connectivity is restored.

MS-KB Q299357 - Reset XP TCP/IP Stack

MS-KB Q811259 - Fix WINSOCK corruption XP

I had the same problem after running Adaware and Spybot. I found that reinstalling the files from both programs brought back my internet connection. I also have narrowed down the culprit to a Wild Tangent file installed on 12/31/04. However, now I can't get rid of Wild Tangent completely. I am posting that problem in a separate thread.

Hope this helps.

Spybot S&D TX gets rid of Wild Tangent completely.
You need to install Spybot S&D, then the TX update, and then run it. The TX update fixes Spybot's previous inability to deal with DSO exploits.

You can get the main program from here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download2471.html

The TX update is over here: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4392.html

Happy hunting.

Have you tried turning off encryption on both ends of the wireless link? It sounds like you may have corrupted the wireless NIC settings. If that doesn't work, uninstall the NIC completely, then install it again.
