Well, if you get Host Not Reachable when you ping (Hotmail) but can reach and ping any other site, then I am really cheering for you to find the solution (not N&P) because I want to hear it. The Live CD test should be interesting.

I didn't bother re-reading the thread, but have you tried Safe Mode with Networking? See if the issue persists there? If everything works in Safe Mode, fire up your favorite autoruns manager and filter down the list to determine the culprit.

iladelf is an unknown quantity at this point

Wonder if the utility mentioned below (I haven't tried it; mentioned elsewhere here on the forums) could assist you in this situation?

i would probably nuke it at this point, just because it is business critical.
