I have a wireless internet connection to my laptop in my home from my desktop computer. Now its worked fine since first getting it but yesterday it suddenly stopped working. The connection is there and the signal is over 90% as it always is but when going on the internet it just says 'this page cannot be displayed' and any other web based application such as msn messenger says im not connected, theres been nothing different since it stopped working the only change i did was uninstalling something called 'opensite' which was always running in the background i searched this and i found it was a worm so surely i was right to uninstall it.

The internet on my pc is still working so im dumbfounded, is there any obvious reason im missing?

you may still have some of it on your system do a scan for virus worms trojans etc

i used ad-aware to scan my computer and got rid of all it said but there was still no response from the internet
