Hello all. I'm running Windows 7 professional on an HP 4320s probook. I recently uninstalled some of the HP programs because I never used them (sorry can't remember which) and now I cant connect to the internet. I get the error message in the thread's title.
I've tried ipconfig/release and the fix that has netsh ip textlog in it and i've also disabled the IP helper. None of these have worked. I looked for webroot in services.msc but couldnt find it so i don't think that's the problem either.
Any ideas?

Can you successfully connect by ethernet?

Please attach a screen shot of the Networks page of the Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector and show ...

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:
(For Vista or 7 type CMD in the Search box after Start)

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

[Note that there is no space between the slash and ALL.]

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

when i try to connect via internet it also says that the "local area connection" doesn't have a valid IP address.
I can't get the print screen key to work on my laptop so I can't take a screen shot of xirrus. I tried alt+prt sc as well as just prt sc. Here is what it says though

Here is what ipconfig has to say:

On some laptops it is necessary to also use the Fn key: Fn + Alt + PrtSc. With Windows 7 (and Vista) I find it easier and more convenient to use the Snipping Tool to grab screen shots.

What security application(s) do you have (firewall, security suite, anti-virus, etc.)?

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.
