Help me! *#^@! Simple tcp/ip will not start.
^thats the shot version.
while cleaning up some spyware I deleted the winsock2 registry (spybots advice.) and rebooted. at that point it said no tcp/ip.
so far I have tried restoring the computer to a previous date. (it can't ever find one that it will actually use, and now it will not go back past dec.)
deleted both the winsock and winsock 2 files from the registry. (xp puts them back but it still doesn't work.)
ipconfig seems to release the ip, but will not renew.
I have even removed sp2, reinstalled windows, and still no tcp/ip.
I tried deleting all the protocols, and such in the net cards properties. (it will not let me get rid of the tcp/ip entry.)
uninstalled all windows networking options from windows setup. rebooted. reinstalled. still nothing.
as well as a few other things i can't even remember right now.
tcp/ip seems to be installed, but will not start.

will it not let you install tcp/ip (even without deleting the old one)? If a reformat and reinstall did not work it might be that your network card is having problems. Do you have another one to test with?

i'm using the same computer right now with a different windows installation on a different drive and everything works fine.
no reformat has been done at this time. just a repair of the old install. lots of files i will need to move before a format, and i would prefer not to start that headache. (format would require lots of hard drive swapping in order to save my files.)
windows will not let me remove or install tcp/ip in the net card properties.
this is definetly a windows problem caused by a "P.O.B.C.A.K. " error. (pobcak= problem originated between chair and keyboard.)

try taking the network card out of the machine...start it up and make sure it's not there...restart....install the card...restart again.

considering its built into the Motherboard that will be just a tad tricky. lol I have tried removing it from the hardware mangler, and let it find it again on a restart though.

can you do a scanreg or scanregw to see if it comes back with anything negative? Or is that non-existant in XP?People are like coins, there's always two sides.

ok, something new to try.
