I uninstalled NOD V4 via the nod uninstaller, not the control panel. The PC rebooted fine, and my internet was gone. I am using for the PC a static IP, and saw that it did not have any gateway anymore. When I added the gateway manually, the internet was back. But after the next reboot it was the same story again... no internet, because gateway entry was empty. I then switched it to dynamic IP, and it works. What the hell is going on? I have NO chance now to use static IP for that PC since the uninstall of NOD. Oh, yes, I did SFC etc., tried a repair, but all was ok... I am using Vista Ulrimate x86.
