Yesterday I bought NOD32. Before installing, I uninstalled Norton 2002, then installed NOD. I reboot after the installation, and I no longer have my network connection. I can't connect to any webpages or anything on the network. I'm at school, so I went to ipconfig to see if I was getting a school IP address and that maybe the network was just down. Not only does everyone else have access, but I have an IP address of 0.0.0.0. Everything is connected as it should be and all the settings seem right to me. If I do ipconfig /release, it tells me that the network connection has already been released. If I do ipconfig /renew, it gives me an error and says that the system cannot find the file specified. I've rebooted more times than I can count, uninstalled NOD, reinstalled, uninstalled, disconnected the ethernet card, reconnected, etc. I also called the IT dept. here and one of the guys I know came over and was about as befuddled as I was. I am seriously at my wit's end here. I really don't know what else to do and I don't understand what the problem is. I've been sending a couple of support emails back and forth, but nothing has worked yet. At this point, I'm seriously considering a format as an option. I don't even care about using NOD even more, although I'm pretty sure that it caused whatever the problem is. Right now, I just want my internet connection working again. Any other opinions or thoughts here? I desperately need help.... Using WinXP Pro, by the way.
