It said "another computer in your network has the same IP address as your computer"

I don't understand what it's trying to tell me? I live in an apartment so a lot of people (including my sister who lives with me) are in the same network....

It means someone is using your internet service and IP address to get on the Internet....probably one of those wi-fi's or Net Gear routers...........

Restart your computer.

If that does not work, try this.

Click start, click Run

type in "cmd" no quotes

type in these commands: hit enter after every line.

ipconfig /flushdns

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew

This is a very common problem when lots of computers use the same network. This is not a virus or spam like the first poster said, this is normal.

May be its hacked or some spam is trying to sell their software to you...check with your internet provider
