ICS Problems - *RESOLVED*

Hi, i recently had a malware attack that i've all cleared up but i cant get Internet Connection Sharing going on my home network again.

The two computers are hooked up fine but when i try to apply "Allow other network user's to connect through this computer's network connection" it fails with the error "The specified service does not exist as an installed service. :blink:

I'm 90% sure that all the neccesary windows services are running, what i'm not sure about is whether i should have a service named ICF/ICS or SharedAccess, because i have neither. Some websites say they are only in certain versions of Windows and were added or removed with service packs. I'm totally lost at this point.

I scoured around for ways to reinstall ICS but found nowhere dealing with this problem, also windows XP CD did nothing.

I'm running Windows XP sp2 and its a broadband line i'm trying to share(don't know if that makes a difference).

Any help would be much appreciated, if i can't fix, it'll be a format. :whistling:

#EDIT - RESOLVED, anyone with this problem go to http://www.howtonetw...y/error1060.htm
