Spyware/virus blocking my net connection??

  1. I'm having a problem...My PC shows I'm connected in my network settings...but I'm not getting an IP address. I've done everything possible..I know it's not my ISP because I plugged into my laptop and it works just fine.(I even put in a new NIC card) I've heard of spyware blocking network connections..but I've ran everything possible, and I can't find anything suspicious. Can someone help before I resort to reformatting?


    thanks

    describe in detail the physical connections, the hardware to make the connection and the OS/SP? level of your system.

    DEFER reformatting as a last ditch effort - - it is SELDOMLY needed but
    frequently over used!

    How about your firewall blocking outgoing traffic?
