How did it stop working? Does it launch when you double click on the icon? Does it error out after launching?

Have you tried following MS's network troubleshooting guide?

Troubleshoot network connection problems

Some questions:

What is the driver status of the network adapters
What is the status of your network icon
Do you get an IP address?

In Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center what is the network status?

Spyware doctor is an award-winning spyware removal software. I have it for years and never had any problem. Just can't imagine that removing it could cause any problems. It must be something else what went wrong in that process. Maybe the program had a driver that was required for connectivity. Check the website of the program developer for details on how to remove the programs and their drivers.

Google to the rescue:

I would try doing a system restore to see if that fixed the problem. Just choose a restore point that was before the uninstall.
