    Hmm ok. I'll look around some more or see if anybody I know has a spare copy. I'll get back to you when I can find one.

    Meanwhile....

    Go Start>Run ("Start Search" in Vista/7), type in:
    sfc /scannow
    Click OK (hold CTRL, and SHIFT, hit Enter in Vista/7).
    Have Windows CD/DVD handy (with Vista/7, most likely, you won't need it).
    If System File Checker (sfc) will find any errors, it may ask you for the CD/DVD (rarely in Vista/7 case).

    I realize you don't have that CD yet, but I just want you to check if "sfc" WILL ask you for a CD.
    That way we'll know if some system files are NOT OK.

    I found the original CD (it was in a storage) and I popped it in but it still won't recognize the qmgr.dll file it asks for when restoring BITS. And it's weird because I see it right there on the CD. The same happens with my friend's CD. I tried the sfc /scannow and it indeed need the CD to replace some DLL's and it was taking a while so I left it alone for a bit. When I came back, the screen was completely black and didn't seem responsive for a while, so I did a hard reset and it came back to its normal state, internet still not working. I'll try sfc again and keep a closer eye to see why it black screened.

    Any suggestions?

    So I decided to just give up and reinstall Windows. Nothing was working. But everything seems to be working fine now. Internet and all. I didn't do a clean installation so I don't know if there's still anything potentially dangerous still lurking around, but for now, I believe the WINDOWS folder is clean.
