How to connect online without rebooting?



I ran adaware on my computer and found an amazingly high amount of high risk problems. I quarentined all that was found and automatically deleted everything that was quarentined w/o checking to see if everything still ran properly.(BIG MISTAKE) I tried connecting to the net using a cable modem. It will not allow me to pull up any web page. It gives me a message as if the computer was not online. Can you give me any information that may assist me in the restoration of my internet...without haveing to reboot windows.
