Vista internet access failing. Gateway 0.0.0.0

For some reason, my internet access fails on Microsoft Vista Business 32-bit edition every time I reboot.  The main symptom is that it puts a default gateway of 0.0.0.0 in the settings.

Why is it doing this?  I don’t think I am infected or anything.  It’s happened to another computer in my network as well.

My fix is to put the following into a batch file in my startup folder:

route delete 0.0.0.0
route add 0.0.0.0 mask 0.0.0.0 192.168.10.1

I have no idea why this keeps happening.  I found alot of info on the net, but no one has figured out the root cause.
