Specs: Windows XP
recently i got a spyware virus on my computer it wasnt letting me use my virus protection (Trend Micro Titanium) or get on the internet, i tried a few times to do a system restore after a few tries it worked and it seems that the virus is off my computer except i cant access the internet still through LAN and i dont know why Usually i use a Netgear wireless USB adapter to get connection then my computers LAN will get signal and work, but now both my computer and netgear wireless card are getting great signal but my computer just keeps on saying acquiring network address and it wont do anything other then that its like its connected but can acquire network address

I just downloaded spybot to make sure the virus is completly off i am running it now and it is asking if i want to immunize my computer, what does it mean to immunize ?? and i am hoping i didnt download a fake version of spybot is there anyway you can show me what it is suppose to look like when it starts up ?

Chances are it's just messed up your connection settings. Start off by checking in Control Panel/Internet Options/connection - click the 'LAN settings' box and make sure there is no proxy set - this is favourite method of malware messing with your internet. If that bit's ok try using winsockfix a safe utility that will reset your connection settings.
