Her computer is a dell dimension 2350 with XP
She runs McAfee Security (which I suspect is the culprit)
There are no icons in the Network folder.. (I think McAfee ate them)
I get error messages that say:
DHCPCSVC.DLL is not a valid image
RASADHLP.DLL is not a valid image
I cannot open windows firewall. It says the ICS (internet connection sharing service is not able to start)
It seems there is no ICS on the computer anymore.
I have tried running network wizards to make a new connection but I can't do that either.
If I do a command prompt - ipconfig I get this error message:
DhcpNotifyMediaReconnected could not be located in the dynamic link library DHCPCSVC.DLL
I have tried system restore.. everything restores but still no networking icons or ability.
I have found both DLL files and replaced them with what I assume are good DLL files, but I still have nothing.
I don't know what else to tell you right now,, tell me what else you might need to know and I will provide.
(Later that night)
Ok, so you know, I am tired. It is 2:15 am right now. I have jump drives holding my eyes open.
I think I may have narrowed the issue down.
My sister and her significant other, and their daughter all have their own user account. I decided to make a new user account with full admin rights.. behold, I have a network icon for LAN
So what do you think?
Wipe out all user accounts and make new ones?
Crap, I have to get some sleep
