I had the same problem recently. I found the firewall I was using had started blocking my DSL modem. I deleted the firewall and have had no problems since. I was using Sygates free firewall.


Two things you could try are running Combofix, and LSPfix. Both are d/loadable from the net for free. There are a number of malware programs that aren't picked up by Virus Scanners.
When you use Combofix you have to disable resident virus protection, then the program automatically runs and removes malware.
LSpfix will show winsock2 stack errors. Check out the web site here
