Please give more info, ie OS for both machines, ISP, router make and model, cable or adsl broadband....first thing to try is unplug the router for a minute or two and then start up your PC's.

When you plug it back in and check from the router config, does the router see the second PC?

avg will not update nor adaware and sygate has dissappaered from sys tray .... hope im not heading for another format\reinstall

It doesnt sound hopeful, try booting in safe mode and removing old drivers and devices from Device Manager, then reboot, switch off any firewall software, remove any network connections, reboot, let Windows re-install anything it finds.

To go back to basics, remove Sygate and enable the Windows firewall. Download Sygate again for installation later

Can you ping sites from the `problem` PC, from the command line?
