Can't connect to internet - IP's are all 0's & DHCP is not enabled

Hi,
I'm working on a friends laptop & at first thought that she had this new Malware virus, but when I look at the IP config all of the IP addresses are zeros. DHCP is disabled for all adapters. When attempting to load IE page I get Error 105 - Unable to resolve the server's DNS address. I'm not sure where to start... Any help is appreciated!!

Try resetting her all her IP settings to default using the following IP reset file:-

IPResetALL.zip

Unzip the file, run the exe file and when asked to reboot, reboot.

A screen shot of the ipconfig/all would be helpful here but you might first try disabling the Microsoft virtual WiFi miniport adaptor first as it causes DNS failures quite often.

You do realize that this file also reboots the machine automatically?

I should know because I'm the one who converted it to an .exe
