I have a feeling it might be a virus or some malware because today my yahoo email randomly sent out emails to contacts in my address book by itself, but I'm not sure... Any help would be appreciated
Ok, to make sure I'm understanding you correctly, you are able to access the Internet but your network status icon says you are not connected to any network.
Have you tried connecting to a network again, regardless?
Double-checked your ethernet connection?
