I deinstalled some software (e.g. some Toolbars for IE and Norton security suite, because the free trial period of 60 days is run out and so i want to switch to microsofts free security essentials). But now i cannot connect to the network again:
- Neither over LAN nor over WiFi.
- Neither with standard DHCP ON (sets a 169.254.x.y address) nor with fixed IP-Address.
No error during changing the settings. Ping to the Gateway e.g. doesn't work and gives "generall failure". The DHCP-Client sets no IP-Address. There is allways only 'local access' on every network-connection.
i ran out of ideas, please help.
UPDATE per 2011-03-11:
I followed each and every hint but nothing changed. I did a research on microsofts homepage through all the sites belonging to network but nothing helped.
What can i do next?
UPDATE per 2011-03-13:
I did a system-repair, loosing all and everything stored on harddisk. This fixed the problem with network and thanks to the smart HP-Tool all the data was saved before, everything is fine: Norton has gone ms security essential is working and by the way i banned ie and choosed firefox.
Thanks to all who tried to help.
