Bought a new computer and decided to give the old one to my niece. To remove all the junk I had on the old one, I reformatted the hard drive and then reinstalled XP. In trying to complete the set up, I was unable to acces the internet. It's an E-machine. I used the new computer to go to their site and download all of the drivers to a flash drive and loaded those on the old computer. Still didn't work.

On the old computer, I click on Start > Control Panel > Internet Options > Connections > Lan Settings >Automatically Detect Settings and nothing happens.

I also click on Start > Control Panel > Network Connections and there's nothing listed. I then click on Create a New Connection and am unable to do so.

So that you know, when I reloaded XP, when finished I got a series of error message stating that the following files were not loaded (among others):

actxprxy.dll
acledit.dll
activeds.tlb
addremov.chm

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

What error message is given?

Try going to Start -> Run -> sfc /scannow
Let SFC scan your system, and pop in your Windows CD if prompted to do so.

The message I get is "The page cannot be displayed." This is after I click to open Internet Explorer.

Gentlemen (and ladies if applicable):
Thank you for your help, but I just got an order to go pick up the kids. I off the computer until they go to bed. My apologies. I didn't expect this to happen. However, in the meantime, I will follow up with what you sent me, and again, thank you for your prompt responses.....that's something I truly appreciate.

Try running SFC.

Otherwise, go to Start -> Run -> cmd
Type in:
regsvr32 XXXXXXXXX
Replace the XXXXXXXX with:

Urlmon.dll
Shdocvw.dll
Actxprxy.dll
Oleaut32.dll
Mshtml.dll
Browseui.dll
Shell32.dll

Press enter after each command.
