no connection after defrag

i'd consider myself an advanced pc user but i've gotten myself into a pickle. i'm fixing a computer for a friend of mine because shes having some spyware issues. i live in the united states and i have comcast cable internet. It was working fine on her computer, but after i defragmented the hard drive, it just says "limited or no connectivity" i've tried disabling the firewall, disabling and uninstalling virus/spyware removal programs (avg and adaware) but nothing works. my connection is fine once i plug it back into my computer, so i know theres nothing wrong with the internet itself or the router. shes running windows xp home edition on a dell desktop.

this is driving me nuts...i need to get this computer up and running again. any help would be appreciated.

Have you checked in internet connections that it is ticked for connect through Lan and that never dial a connection is ticked.

Try a Winsock fix , that's the thing that get broken most often when removing spayware and viruses , click here for one you can download and run , hope this helps .
