    go to your run line and type in cmd and hit enter
    you now are in a black box usually with c:\documents and settings\your account name
    type ipconfig /all >ip.txt
    type exit
    You are now back in windows.
    Using explorer go to your documents and settings folder and open up the file ip.txt
    Go edit and select all
    Go edit and copy
    Now go to this post and right mouse click and choose paste.
    Post it here so we can review.

    If you have a current antivirus program and antispyware program, you need to run some updates and deep scans as it sounds like your pc is really messed up.
