Hi, Having a small problem with my MBP- previously had a version of Intego antivirus on there, which I deleted, including some of the Library files (but only the AV related ones). This somehow prevented me from accessing the internet via Chrome or Safari, so I did some online research and found that it was a fairly common problem relating to the Intego software. Anyway, I couldn't find a workaround without net access, so I backed up any important files and wiped the Macintosh HD (I'm running bootcamp with a windows partition, but kept that). Anyway, now trying to reinstall OSX Lion (via CMD-R) onto the wiped HD and it goes through the down/loading process, but after finishing and restarting I just get a grey screen with the loading gearwheel and a crossed circle icon that doesn't change. Any advice on what to do would be greatly appreciated.

Just FYI, I've tried several times to install it onto the Macintosh HD partition, without success. I'd rather not wipe the Windows bootcamp partition and completely reinstall OSX if at all possible, as if even that didn't work I'd be left without any access at all. Safe mode (shift on startup) doesn't seem to work either.

Thanks.
