    well ... a description of the network devices and system would certainly help.

    Could you download Hijackthis from here.

    Then read this thread, which explains how to post your hijackthis log. Follow all instructions exactly.

    here you tell us there is no internet connection

    so wat do you mean by all this?
    why would you use limewire and msn if you have no internet connection?
    just confusing.
    explain and clear my doubt.

    No internet connection. Have you contacted your ISP? (Internet Service Provider).

    Are you using Router?
    Or just the Modem connected to the PC?
    Are you using DSL or Cable?

    What happens when you do a ipconfig /all?
    Do you get and error when you do ipconfig /all?
    Can the PC see other PCs on your LAN?
    When you type: arp -a do you see your IP and default-gateway IP address?
    Have you ever tried to arp cace purge the network protocols cache?
    Using this command mode: netsh interface ip delete arpcache
    If the above doesn't work for you try uninstalling the NIC driver
    Reboot the PC
    Then reinstall the NIC driver.
