I'll need the name of the network adapter you have installed...it should be in the Everest Report under Devices > Windows Devices...or in Device Manager.

For the shockwave file, see if you can more it out of the system32 folder and just put it on the C: drive. Use Cut and Paste to move it rather than drag and drop or Copy/Paste. If you can get that file out of the folder and delete the folder, we'll have better luck getting rid of it.

in device manager the name of the network adaptor is Realtek RTL8139 Family PCI Fast Ethernet NIC but when i open everest under the windows devices and select network adaptors i get a list of 9 including direct paralell,microsoft tv\video connection,the realtek ethernet 1 i just mentioned plus the same realtek 1 with packet scheduler miniport added on the end,then 5 WAN miniports with (ip),(ip)-packet scheduler minport,(L2TP),(PPPOE),and (PPTP) added on the end.

have managed to move the shockwave file and sucessfully delete system 32,now all files are deleted in the windows folder but when i try and delete the windows folder itself it deletes for about 30 secs then stops so i still have the folder there even though it is empty...so i havent modified the boot loader yet,will it be safe to modify it with that folder still in place?

We'll get the flash file back by downloading a fresh copy and putting it in the new system32 folder. Install Shockwave to the Windows0 directory.

See if MoveOnBoot will get the Windows folder. Have you got Folder View set to show "Hidden files and folders"? There may be files in there you can't see.

You can go ahead and change the boot.ini file. All that will do is tell the machine to boot to the new directory without the prompt to choose your operating system at startup.

The Realtek site seems to be down at the moment...I'll get you a link to that driver when the site comes backup.

You need to right click on the zip file and choose "Extract All"...you should then see a new file...double click on that to install the drivers.

Go to Device Manager, right click on each of the devices that are "flagged", and choose "Update Driver"...let windows search for the drivers. You may have to include the location of the extracted files in the search, but Windows should find them and install them. Once you have done this, let me know what you see in Device Manager.

I'm guessing this is a PCI Network card...not the onboard. Download this Realtek Driver and extract it...it should have an installer you can run.

Just out of curiosity, try Windows Update. Use the "Custom" option and check for hardware updates after it scans your machine. Does it show any available?
