Right, on Tuesday afternoon I was randomly surfing the Interwebs when my Internet went from 'Local + Internet' to just 'Local'. It has been like this for a firm 3 days (I have had to use a relative's computer to ask this question.)

The diagnosis was that 'Windows Couldn't Communicate with Primary DNS Server (Correct DNS settings in brackets)' 'Network diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not recieve a response'. My laptop, my Dad's laptop and my PSP all can't connect.

Now the interesting thing is I do a scan on Spybot S+D evey day, and on Tuesday it picked up something new - DNSFlush.cws

I read up on it, and in a combo with other spyware programs it can alter your DNS settings.

These were found by Spybot S+D:
DNSFlush.cws
Win32.Zbot
GrokLoader
MeMedia.AdVantage
MyWay.MyWebSearch
Virtumonde
Virtumonde.prx
Win32.Agent.pz
Win32.AOLPass.i
Win32.Iksmas.ai
Win32.Kolabc.ezg

All since have been cleared and have not been found on my PC as of 2 hours ago.

How I get my Internet back?

So>Obviously a few things are not right here.Like both network adapters not working.
Are you using a wired or wireless connection?
Take a look at device manager.
Let’s take a look at the status of the network adapters

Device manager:

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type devmgmt.msc

Please respond to all the following steps.
1. Under Network adapters, please tell me all the devices listed.
2. Are there any devices under Network adapters that have a red x displayed?
3. Also, are there any devices anywhere in the Device Manager display with yellow ? or ! displayed?
4. Under general tab should be enabled and working properly.
5. If error code,what is it ?

Then,for dhcp enabling :
Johnwill tip for DHCP Vista configuration
If using your ethernet connection :
Configure DHCP for Windows Vista.
1. Click on the Start menu, and select Control Panel.
2. Click on Network and Internet. (Skip this step if you do not see this Control Panel item.)
3. Click on Network and Sharing Center.
4. Click on Manage network connections.
5. Right click on Local Area Connection and choose Properties. If Windows say it needs your permission to continue, click Continue.
6. Select Internet Protocol Version 4(TCP/IPv4) and click Properties.
7. Select Obtain an IP address automatically.
8. Select Obtain DNS server address automatically.
9. Click OK to close the TCP/IP Properties window.
10. Click OK to close the Local Area Connection Properties window.
11. Click Close to close the Network Connections window.
12. Click Close to close the Control Panel window.
13. Restart your computer.

Well for one I can understand your computer not working, but your others should have not been affected. Does your PSP and laptop also have the correct DNS server? What is the DNS server? (ie is it the same as your gateway?)
