Well I've still got no idea.

Will try some spyware scanners again I guess, and see if that brings any luck

Can you put the firefox installer on a disc on your PC, install on the laptop, and give that a try?

Stinger found a couple of viruses and is still scanning, hopefully that is a fix.

Installing firefox in a moment....

Do you have any other computers connecting to the internet through the same router? I mean the main router, NOT the WAP(Wireless Access Point). You want to make sure the problem is in the laptop and not with the connection itself(ISPs sometimes just go down for a while).

You say your ping worked fine when you typed ping forum.interference.com or ping www.google.com? This is what perplexes me because what you're describing - where a browser won't connect to any page but a ping works fine - sounds like a situation where the connection is fine but your computer doesn't know of any DNS server to connect to...but if using ping with with a web address(as opposed to an IP address) works, then that can't be the problem.

I realize what I just said probably doesn't mean much to you

Um...I'm trying to think of the simple things...

1.Make sure the laptop is connecting to the RIGHT wireless network...if a neighbor has a wireless network or something, your wireless card could be recognizing it instead of yours, and that would effect your internet connection.

2.If you have any way connecting your laptop to the main router via hardwire(aka non-wireless), try that and see if you can connect.

Isolating the problem is key.

I have a very basic setup of just two these two computers. (Laptop & PC)

WAP is conntected to the modem

I have a wireless controller in both Computers, and it was worked 110% fine since last night when I turned on the laptop, and nothing worked.

I will try the non-wirelss idea!

I get the same problem when connected non-wirelessly (is that even a word )

So this is probably the same problem I had when I was using dial up a few weeks ago, I could stay conncted but it would just terminitate the connection after probably a minute or so.

With the Connection i'm on now it just has a few loading bars and then says page cannont be found ect ect..

I'm thinking firefox is not going to fix this anyway....

But you say you have one other computer besides the laptop on the same connection...are you having any problems connecting with that computer right now?

If the 'other PC' is connecting to the internet fine, than the connection isn't the problem.

You might try to get access to another wireless card, put it in your laptop, and see if it makes a difference.

But since I've tried the Laptop working with the 'non-wireless' soultion, and that didnt work...is another wireless card going to make much of a diffrence?

Yes, you're right, I misread that.

I'm stumped. The laptop can ping fine, so a connection is there, but the browser won't connect to anything, wirelesly or hardwired. The other pc has no problem.

Did you try firefox yet?
